1 VLC - AG(AE) AP TUNING Office of the Accountant General (A&E) Andhra Pradesh Hyderabad

2 VLC - AG(AE) AP Tuning When is tuning necessary? –Only if you feel that application is not running fast enough What is to be tuned? –Oracle database –Application –Operating system –Network

3 VLC - AG(AE) AP Tuning Goals To optimize the performance of database To make database available to users without making them wait for resources To perform maintenance operations without interrupting users

4 VLC - AG(AE) AP Tuning Parameters Response time Database availability Database hit percentages Memory utilization

5 VLC - AG(AE) AP Tuning Steps Tune the design Tune the application Tune memory Tune IO Tune contention Tune operating system

6 VLC - AG(AE) AP Tuning Considerations Different for –OLTP databases –DSS databases –Hybrid databases Our database –Hybrid database –Data entry and Report generation done simultaneously

7 VLC - AG(AE) AP Hybrid Databases Number of rollback segments for data entry Some large rollback segments for report generation Balanced db_block_buffers and log_buffers Medium size for db_block_size

8 VLC - AG(AE) AP Tuning Hybrid Databases Tuning application is important in hybrid databases Indexing plays an important role Schedule batch processing if it is heavy on resources Use less number of bind variables in reports Optimize queries using hints

9 VLC - AG(AE) AP Views, Utilities and Tools Used For Tuning Dynamic troubleshooting/performance and dictionary views –V$XXXX dynamic troubleshooting and performance views –DBA_XXX dictionary views Utlbstat.sql and utlestat.sql Alert logs and traces nitialization parameters

10 VLC - AG(AE) AP Tuning Statistics To Be Gathered Library cache statistics System statistics Wait event statistics Latch statistics Rollback contention statistics Buffer busy wait statistics Dictionary cache statistics IO statistics per data file/table space Period of measurement

11 VLC - AG(AE) AP Alert Log Files The lert log file consists of a chronological log of messages and errors Check the alert log file to: –Detect internal errors and block corruption errors –Monitor database operations –View the non-default initialization parameters Remove or trim the alert log file regularly after checking

12 VLC - AG(AE) AP Background Processes Trace Files The Oracle server dumps information about errors detected by any background process in trace files Oracle support uses these trace files to diagnose and trouble shoot problems

13 VLC - AG(AE) AP User Trace Files Server process tracing is enabled or disabled at the session or instance level by: –The ALTER_SESSION command –The SET_SQL_TRACE_IN_SESSION procedure –The initialization parameter SQL_TRACE A user trace file contain statistics for traced SQL statements for that session A user trace file is used for SQL tuning The Oracle database creates user trace files on per server process basis

14 VLC - AG(AE) AP Tuning Memory The amount of memory occupied by Oracle is called SGA SGA contains –DB Block Buffers –Redo Log Buffers –Shared Pool oLibrary Cache oData Dictionary Cache oUGA –Large Pool

15 VLC - AG(AE) AP Tuning Memory In hybrid databases like VLC, memory plays an important role Ideally DB_BLOCK_BUFFERS and LOG_BUFFERS to be in 80-20 ratio SHARED_POOL_SIZE also plays an important parameter in tuning memory

16 VLC - AG(AE) AP Tuning Library Cache Library Cache tuned –If the pins to misses ratio is more than 1% –If the get hit ratio of name space is less than 90% V$Views –V$LIBRARYCACHE –V$SQLAREA –V$SQLTEXT –V$DB_OBJECT_CACHE

17 VLC - AG(AE) AP Tuning Library Cache To find hit ratio of library cache –Select namespace, gethitratio from v$librarycache To find reloads of SQL statements –Select sql_text, users_executing, executions, loads from v$sqlarea To find library cache reloads –Select sum(pins) Executions, sum(reloads) Misses, sum(reloads)/sum(pins) Hitratio from v$librarycache

18 VLC - AG(AE) AP Tuning Library Cache Keep often used objects Avoid parsing Avoid large anonymous PL/SQL Blocks –Select sql_text from v$sqlarea where command type=47; Reserve un-fragmentable memory in shared pool –SHARED_POOL_RESERVED_SIZE –SHARED_POOL_MIN_ALLOC

19 VLC - AG(AE) AP Tuning Data Dictionary Cache Keep the ratio of the getmisses to gets less than 15% –Select parameter, gets, getmisses from v$rowcache Increase shared pool size if the above ratio is more than 15%

20 VLC - AG(AE) AP Tuning DB Block Buffer Cache DB hit ratio should always be more than 90% To find DB Cache hit ratio –Select 1-(p.value)/(d.value+c.value) from v$sysstat p, v$sysstat d, v$sysstat c where = physical reads and = db block gets and = consistent gets;

21 VLC - AG(AE) AP Tuning Buffer Cache If DB hit ratio gets below 90% –Increase buffer cache size –Use multiple buffer pools –Cache tables –Bypass the buffer cache for sorting and parallel reads

22 VLC - AG(AE) AP Tuning Buffer Pool To use multiple pool buffers set –DB_BLOCK_BUFFERS –DB_BLOCK_LRU_LATCHES –BUFFER_POOL_KEEP –BUFFER_POOL_RECYCLE To enable table caching –Alter table with cache clause –Use cache hint in query

23 VLC - AG(AE) AP Tuning Redo Log Buffer Following parameters effect log buffer –LOG_BUFFER –LOG_CHECK_POINT_INTERVAL –LOG_CHECK_POINT_TIMEOUT Check for –Redo buffer space event –Redo buffer allocation retries –Redo log space requests –Logfile switch (check point incomplete) –Logfile switch (archive needed)

24 VLC - AG(AE) AP Tuning Check Point Each checkpoint cause IO operations Frequent checkpoints reduces runtime performance Parameters –FAST_START_IO_TARGET –LOG_CHECK_POINT_INTERVAL –LOG_CHECK_POINT_TIMEOUT –DB_BLOCK_MAX_DIRTY_TARGET –LOG_CHECK_POINT_TO_ALERT

25 VLC - AG(AE) AP Tuning Large Pool Used for oracle maintenance operations UGA in MTS mode Parallel query IO-server process Tuning parameters –LARGE_POOL_SIZE –DBWR_IO_SLAVES

26 VLC - AG(AE) AP Latches Contention areas that the DBA can tune: –Redo allocation latch –Redo copy latch –LRU latch Latch types –Willing to wait oGets, misses, sleeps –Immediate oImmediate gets and immediate waits

27 VLC - AG(AE) AP LRU Latches LRU latches regulate the least recently used (LRU) lists used by the buffer cache By default, the Oracle server set the number of LRU latches to one-half the number of CPUs, with a minimum of one Each latch controls a minimum of 50 buffers

28 VLC - AG(AE) AP LRU Latch Tuning Goals Ensure there are sufficient number of LRU latches for the data buffer cache so that contention between server processes is minimized Balance the number of latches with the number of CPUs Set one DBWn process for each latch

29 VLC - AG(AE) AP Resolving LRU Latch Contention If the hit percentage for the LRU latch is less than 99% –Increase the number of LRU latches by setting the parameter DB_BLOCK_LRU_LATCHES –The maximum number of latches is the lower of: oNumber of CPUs*2*3 oNumber of buffers/50

30 VLC - AG(AE) AP Free Lists A free list for an object maintains a list of blocks that are available for inserts The number of free lists for an object cannot be set dynamically Single CPU systems do not benefit greatly from multiple free lists The tuning goal is to ensure that an object has sufficient free lists to minimize contention

31 VLC - AG(AE) AP Resolving Free List Contention Query the V$SESSION_WAIT view Identify the object and get free lists for the segment from DBA_SEGMENTS Re-create the object in question

32 VLC - AG(AE) AP Tuning IO-contentions Keep data files and log files on separate disks Stripe table data Reduce Disk IO Evaluate the use of RAW devices To know IO of files –Select, f.phyrds, f.phyrds from v$datafile d, v$filestat where d.file# = f.file#

33 VLC - AG(AE) AP Oracle File Striping Operating system striping –Use operating system striping software or RAID –Decide on the right stripe size Manual striping –Use the create table or alter table ALLOCATE command –Is worth while with parallel query usage

34 VLC - AG(AE) AP Tuning Data Files Keep data files and log files on separate disks to reduce IO contention Specify the initialization parameter DB_FILE_MULTIBLOCK_READ_COUNT –To determine the number of database blocks the server reads at once –To influence the execution plan of the cost- based optimizer

35 VLC - AG(AE) AP Tuning Log Files Size redo log files to minimize the contention Have enough groups to prevent waiting Store redo log files on separate faster devices Dynamic views –V$LOG –V$LOGFILE

36 VLC - AG(AE) AP Tuning Archive Log Files Keep archive log files on separate IO faster devices Archive log operations parameters –LOG_ARCHIVE_MAX_PROCESSES –LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST Dynamic views –V$ARCHIVE_DEST –V$ARCHIVE_LOG –V$ARCHIVE_PROCESSES

37 VLC - AG(AE) AP Tuning Rollback Segments Transactions should never wait for access to rollback segments Rollback segments should not extend during normal running Users and utilities should try to use less rollback No transaction should ever run out of rollback space Readers should always see the read- consistent images they need

38 VLC - AG(AE) AP Tuning Rollback Segments The ratio of the sum of waits to the sum of gets should be less than 1% –Select sum(gets) gets, sum(waits) waits, sum(waits)*100/sum(gets) ratio from v$rollstat; If the ratio is more than 1% then create more rollback segments The number of waits for any class should be less than 1% of the total number of requests

39 VLC - AG(AE) AP Sizing Transaction Rollback Data Deletes are expensive Inserts use minimal rollback space Updates use rollback space depending on the number of columns Index maintenance adds rollback

40 VLC - AG(AE) AP Possible Problems Transactions fails for lack of rollback space Snapshot too old error occurs if: –The inserted transaction list in the block being queried has been reused, and the SCN in the block is newer than the SCN at the start of the query –The transaction slot in the rollback segment header has been reused –The undo data in the rollback segment has been overlaid after a commit

41 VLC - AG(AE) AP Tablespace Usage Reserve the SYSTEM tablespace usage for data dictionary objects Create locally managed tablespaces to avoid space management issues Split tables and indexes into separate tablespaces Create separate rollback tablespaces Store very large database objects in their own tablespace Create one or more temporary tablespaces
