Optimizing Single Instance Oracle Databases on Oracle's T-Series Servers

Date Added: Sep 2010

This paper is intended for Oracle Database Administrators (DBAs) who want to optimize single instance Oracle Database performance on Oracle's T-series servers. Oracle's T-series servers are based on Oracle's CMT processors which combine chip multiprocessing (CMP) and hardware multithreading (MT) with an efficient instruction pipeline to enable chip multithreading. The resulting processor design provides multiple physical instruction execution pipelines and several active thread contexts per pipeline.
