The Oracle instance, background processes, the SGA and memory structures are explored. As well as administering the initialization parameter file and the procedures for database startup and shutdown. Various models of data concurrency and consistency and alternative isolation levels are explained along with their uses.
A large portion of the class covers common administration tasks such as managing the use of disk space through data files, tablespaces, extents, blocks and rows, the UNDO tablespace and the on-line redo log.
The effective use of indexes is presented and how Oracle uses indexes to improve query performance.
