DB Optimizer 1.0 released today, a major step reaffirming our attention on database performance related issue. Plus yet another product built on Eclipse.
It is hard to believe there is so much power behind something this beautiful. The team has really delivered some great workflow as well. All this adds up to very nice user experience. Give it a try, you will find that there are many ways to partition the performance information that is being presented and find root areas where tuning can be provided. However I personally like to look at the SQL with the greatest number of executions which by the way is conveniently summed by applying some sophisticated predicate analyst and then let the tools automatic tuning capability tell me how to make it faster. It is so easy you quickly forget how hard it was to do that before this tool. Try it for yourself and let me know what you think.
Also I would like welcome all the Embarcaderian visitors to Toronto this week. We have a lot of internal training going on this week which includes some exciting hands on workshops on Wednesday. I suspect a lot of these workshops will be showing up on the web in blog format in blaugust. More on that later.
