About this book

PeopleSoft for the Oracle DBA, Second Edition stands on the boundary between the PeopleSoft application and the Oracle database. This new edition of David Kurtz's book is freshly revised, showing how to tame the beast and manage Oracle successfully in a PeopleSoft environment.

You’ll learn about PeopleSoft’s Internet architecture and its use of Oracle’s Tuxedo Application Server. You’ll find full coverage of key database issues such as indexing, connectivity, and tablespace usage as they apply to PeopleSoft. Kurtz also provides some of the best advice and information to be found anywhere on managing and troubleshooting performance issues in a PeopleSoft environment. The solid coverage of performance troubleshooting is enough by itself to make PeopleSoft for the Oracle DBA a must-have book for any Oracle Database administrator working in support of a PeopleSoft environment.

  • Explains PeopleSoft’s technical architecture as it relates to Oracle Database
  • Demonstrates how to instrument and measure the performance of PeopleSoft
  • Provides techniques to troubleshoot and resolve performance problems

About the authors

David Kurtz began working with version 5.1 of the Oracle database in 1989 in a small software house as an Oracle developer/database administrator working on assurance and insurance software. In 1996, he joined PeopleSoft U.K., starting out in support and gradually moving into consultancy over several years. Since there was virtually no internal documentation about how PeopleSoft related to the database, he started by working out the relationship between the application and database for himself. This led to fixing performance problems in PeopleSoft systems. Soon enough, David was spending all of his time on performance-related consultancy. David left PeopleSoft in 2000 to go into business for himself as Go-Faster Consultancy Ltd. (http://Go-Faster.co.uk). There, he provides performance and technical consultancy, mostly to PeopleSoft users, mostly on Oracle. Since then, Kurtz has learned to apply principles of response-based performance, not just to the database, but holistically to the entire application stack. David has been a member of the U.K. Oracle User Group since 1994. He chaired the UNIX SIG between 2000 and 2006, and serves on the board of directors. He presents regularly at PeopleSoft and Oracle conferences and meetings. David is a member of the OakTable Network (OakTable.net) and is also an Oracle ACE Director. David started the lively PeopleSoft DBA Forum on Yahoo!(http://groups.yahoo.com/group/psftdba) following a roundtable discussion at a PeopleSoft conference in 2002, and it continues to be a valuable resource. He writes two blogs: PeopleSoft (http://blog.psftdba.com) and exclusively Oracle database (http://blog.go-faster.co.uk).
