Oracle DBA’s can spend massive amounts of time trying to pinpoint the cause of DB performance issues.

Luckily, Oracle has in-built mechanisms to help DBA’s quickly identify performance bottlenecks – the Automated Workload Repository (AWR).

This short guide provides a crash course into how to quickly analyze AWR reports to identify performance issues, as well as possible infrastructure solutions that can help ensure that those problems are eliminated for good.
