UKOUG Tech13, Latency Investigations and Lost Writes

I am looking forward to participating again to the UKOUG annual conference. This year I will present together with my colleague Marcin Blaszczyk on two topics that are follow-up of articles in this blog.
The first talk is: Storage Latency for Oracle DBAs. A presentation about a performance tuning techniques for Oracle and storage, based on the study of latency wait event histograms and their representations with heat maps. It will be a good occasion also to show examples of the usage of OraLatencyMap and PyLatencyMap.
The second talk is: Lost Writes, a DBA’s Nightmare? This is a short presentation about lost writes in Oracle, based on our production experience. It's still surprising to me how such a seemingly unimportant failure class can in reality generate very complex failure and recovery scenarios.
If you are participating to the Tech13 conference, feel free to come and talk to us! Our presentations are on Monday morning (11:30 in the hall Exchange 4/5) and Wednesday morning (9:30 in the Exchange Auditorium).
More presentations at Tech13 by CERN colleagues: "Next Generation GoldenGate vs. Streams for Physics Data", "Cardinality Feedback Tuning Revisited – Adaptive Query Optimization in Oracle 12c", "WebLogic as a Service Provider for CERN Web Applications: APEX & Java EE", "Using SQL Developer to Improve Code Quality"
