I’m a pre-sales performance engineer, currently focusing on the Oracle Exadata Database Machine, Oracle SuperCluster and other SPARC Platforms.
I started off my employment career as a Unix Sysadmin, after 3 years, I was presented with some Oracle databases to administer and since then I’ve had a foot in both camps.
I’m a generalist – I can do a bit of most things pretty well, but I’m not the girl to call if you need a chunk of dtrace script debugging or a problem with a complicated piece of pl/sql.
Always check the apropriate documentation to see if best practice has moved on since I wrote an article, and don’t take anything I say as authorative. There’s always more than one way to do things, and my way may not be the best.
