Data is a series of facts that have been gathered, processed, stored, manipulated but not organized. DataBase Management Systems (DBMS) provide a mechanism for storing, organizing, retrieving and interacting with data in a database. The DBMS decides how information in the form of data is stored and retrieved. It also addresses issues concerning memory requirements, accuracy, security, consistency, maintenance and response times. DBMS performance and tuning is an integral aspect of database management. This paper presents various methods to tackle performance issues using effective tuning tools and techniques.
