Beta Testing Ends For "Oracle Database 11g: Performance Tuning" Exam

!http://blogs.oracle.com/certification/2009-0204-1122.gif!
<p>The beta period ended on Aug 31, 2009 for the <strong>Oracle Database 11g: Performance Tuning</strong> certification exam (1Z1-054), which is a single exam requirement for Oracle 11g DBA OCPs to earn the Oracle Database 11g Performance Tuning Certified Expert (OCE) certification.</p>

Hello Hussein
Yes true, I remember it for the OCE and Linux exams they rescheduled the end date several times. As far as I know it is related to the number of participants and the given feedback.
I've also participated to several other exams, and I must admit that it is a long and hard process to get through. When I got the feedback 10 weeks after the beta period closure, I had to review nearly all the topics to get the exams passed the second time. But this it is a cheap and good exam preparation.
What about you Hussein? Do you think that's trivial?

    I want to take the certification Oracle Database 11g: Performance Tuning exam 1Z0-054 and want to write the exam.
    To earn the OCE credentials, I know that we need to take training from Oracle University. I am not an OCP currently.
    Can I write the exam now and later take the course to meet the certification requirements? I know it is not the right way, but I can not pay $3000 for the course as of now. I can write the exam through self study. I want to check if I can take the exam now and later take the course.
    Is it mandatory to take the course before taking the exam?
    Thanks,
    naveen.Indeed you can take the exam now, and subsequently earn the 11g PERFTUNE OCE credential when you either:
    1) complete, submit and get verified the OU authorised 11g perftune course (possible but seems a little cart before horse).
    or
    2) Become 11g DBA OCP.

  • Can i use "Oracle Database 12c: Performance Management and Tuning " training for getting certification on "Oracle Database 11g: Performance Tuning 1Z0-054"

    i have taken "Oracle Database 12c: Performance Management and Tuning new" training from oracle university. Now i would like to get certified on "Oracle Database 11g: Performance Tuning 1Z0-054" exam. Is it possible ?

    I essentially endorse and refer you to Matthews' and John's post above.
    I would differ with slightly with Matthew because my guess is you would often be able to use like for like 12c training for an 11g certification ( I believe there are precedents).  BEFORE ANYONE ASKS THE OTHER WAY DOESN'T HAPPEN.
    .... but totally concur with Matthew you would ill advised to procede on that basis without one of:
    - This being advertised as possible on the website : e.g. https://education.oracle.com/pls/web_prod-plq-dad/db_pages.getpage?page_id=654&get_params=p_id:169 ... option 2 show courses.
    - Confirmation from Brandye
    - Confirmation from an Oracle Certification Support Web Ticket ( http://education.oracle.com/pls/eval-eddap-dcd/OU_SUPPORT_OCP.home?p_source=OCP )
    ... The more common (and in my opinion usually better) way would be get your 11g DBA OCP ( or higher first) and then take the 1z0-054.  I am almost certain they will accept your 12c course for the 11g DBA OCP.
    If you are choosing the route of not being a 11g (or 12c ) DBA OCP first but are on option 2 and relying on the course for certification then the issue is more in the balance and you are even more strongly advised to get confirmation before proceding (remember if the rules need to be changed for you only then any profit out of the exam is lost).
    In general my understanding is Oracle would prefer to encourage people to train on the latest version of product that is available for training  and will prefer to avoid restrictions which would cause you to train at a lower version.  ( This is simply my guess at Oracle University Policy ... personal opinion only).
    Having said all I have said I'd encourage you to go with the advice of the earlier two posts.

  • 1z0-054: Oracle Database 11g Performance Tuning Expert

    I am planning to give the exam 1z0-054 to get the certification, "Oracle Database 11g Performance Tuning Expert".
    The Certification Path says that, if you are and "OCP DBA 11g" then you can directly take this paper, and there is no Instructor Led Training requirement. Therefore, I decide to prepare for it by my own. Can someone guide me about the study material and dumps?
    Regards,
    Ahmer Mansoor

    Therefore, I decide to prepare for it by my own. Can someone guide me about the study material and dumps?First of all, the word 'dumps' has a specific meaning. It is shorthand for 'brain dumps' which are illegal and can cost you this certification and any others you have taken.
    http://blogs.oracle.com/certification/entry/0477
    Second -- there currently is no study guide or book specific to this certification available at this time. I write study guides and this one is actually next on my list once I complete the current book for *1Z0-117: Oracle Database 11g Release 2: SQL Tuning*. I won't have a guide for 1Z0-054 until some time in May most likely. That said, I have some links to legal study material on the companion website for my guide series relevant to topics for this exam. It also has links to the Oracle documentation that contains information you need. Once I start writing the book for this exam, the links will expand rapidly as I research the topics for it and the documentation links may expand as well.

  • Server Hardware for Oracle Database 11g Release 2 with Oracle Spatial

    Hi ,
    We're to set up an Oracle Database 11g Release 2 Enterprise with Oracle Spatial.
    Can you provide me the possible Server Hardware CPU / Memory specs , number of CPUs,type of OS and teh Model, for Spatial which a million users hits the database via a webservice?
    The vendor suggested us SDD instead of HDD, any performance hike on this?
    Budget seems to okay but I think Exadata will be too dear.
    Your insights is much appreciated.Anything relating to setting up a server with spatial is greatly appreciated.
    P/S: Been a programmer and don't knwo much about server hardware specs.

    It depends.
    Seriously - before anyone can offer anything but generalities here you need to really define exactly what you expect the database to deliver.
    In general however, I will throw out these questions and ideas...
    For instance - you say a million users "hit" the database (via a web service). Is that WFS, WMS, KML or ???
    Over - how long? A year? A month? A minute? A million hits over a year spread out evenly is only about 2 per minute.
    And what is a hit? A single random record? Or about 10,000 records in the same spatial area... or? And for each record - are you returning simple point data - or hugely complex polygons with thousands of vertexes each?
    How does this software work? Is it custom - or is it well known? Does it really query the database for every map (I assume it is a map service) feature - or does it read an area once and cache it in the middle tier? Or does it do something really smart and use cached tiles for static data - overlayed with vectors for dynamic data?
    And although you say Oracle Spatial - are you really using Spatial - or just Locator functions (less processing in general)? And if spatial - are you doing raster in the db - or 3D analysis - or other special functionality?
    SSD vs. HDD. - If you can buy a server with more RAM than the data set size (pretty easy these days) - and you do mostly reads (almost always the case for a map app) - buy a small cheap array of RAID'd HDD's - internal to the server is fine. Once the data is read into RAM - the HDD's do basically nothing.
    Server CPU and memory. Amount - see above. CPU Speed (use performance benchmarks - not GHz numbers) AND memory speed (often overlooked) - buy as fast as possible. Why? You pay for licenses by the core (2 cores per license for x64). And HW is MUCH MUCH MUCH cheaper than Oracle licenses. Plan to upgrade HW every year if necessary to avoid buying more licenses (sounds crazy - but it is much cheaper).
    This may seem like a lot - but these questions are just the tip of the iceberg. I have been in charge of spec'ing, building, and programming spatial systems now for about 20 years, so I have a pretty good idea of how to do enterprise scale computing on a Ramon-noodle budget.
    Smart clean software is your friend - don't ask the HW to do anything unless absolutely necessary (cache results and reuse as much as possible), and you can get crazy performance from minimal hardware.

  • VSS for Oracle Database 11g Express Edition?

    I use Veeam to backup our servers.
    I have a Windows 2003 R2 Std edition. On it we have Oracle Database 11g Express Edition (upgraded from 10g).
    I would like to enable application-aware image processing (VSS)
    I do not have the Oracle VSS Writer Service installed, and the oravssw.exe is not in the oracle folder.
    1. Does Oracle Database 11g Express Edition support/include Oracle VSS Writer?
    2. If I get the oravssw.exe from another (not express) oracle database, can I copy it and use it on my 11g Express Edition to create the Oracle VSS Writer?
    Thanks in advance

    Its interesting 10g XE was for 64 bit and 11g XE is for 32 bit.The other way around. 10.2 is 32-bit and 11.2 is 64-bit. Seems like a logical or natural progression (haven't seen a 32-bit machine for some years now).

  • How to enable autoconfig for Oracle database 11g?

    Hi,
    I have a Oracle 11g database installed using runInstaller, and now I want to enable autoconfig feature in this database.
    Is it possible to do that?
    Please suggest me..
    Thanks,
    Prasad

    I do not believe you can run autoconfig for database server. Oracle apps database are configured with some specific table which are used by these adcfg pre clone scripts to store some information but you do will nto find these tables in normal databases. This is the reason I believe you cannot run autoconig on normal databases.
    You might be able to do something similar to autoconfig if you show some creativity by tweaking the scripts and creating the tables  but why to go this difficult route. You can instead create and automate script for duplicating database using RMAN.
