Craig Shallahamer is an Oracle performance expert with over 20 years of experience. His book is the first to focus, not on the problem of solving today's problem, but squarely on the problem of forecasting the future performance of an Oracle database.

Craig Shallahamer poured his soul into the book to create a practitioners handbook-like reference guide.
Creating the book was a massive undertaking. Over twenty-five years of IT experience and twenty of them specifically focused on Oracle systems, countless consulting engagements and technical research papers have been consolidated into this single book. Craig framed the book during June of 2008 and started writing in September of 2008.
Each one of these individuals contributed countless hours reviewing every word Craig wrote. Responses like, Excellent chapter! Truly incredible! This is amazing stuff! I felt like I was reading the finished product! encouraged Craig to continue his commitment and finish the project.

Some, including Craig Shallahamer, use software tools to understand what's exactly going on. Craig also uses the brilliant technique to read through Oracle Patents.
Who even knew IMU existed before Craig Shallahamer explained it?
Where else do you find information about cache buffer chains and their implementation?
Thank you Craig, you saved me months of research.
By the way it's written you can tell than Craig is telling a story of his life. In my 7+ years of professional Oracle DBA carrier I have seen many books related to performance, but none of them matches this one. Its contents are so consolidated and in depth explained, that literally took me hours to read it. There is no other place on the net that in 400+ pages covers brilliant "problem-solution" approach for problems that many database administrators are facing in real life. All chapters are amazing, but my favorite one is the chapter for buffer cache internals; pure art! But Craig goes even beyond that; he strives to convert Oracle centric terminology into a simplified & summarized performance representation using ORTA which is clearly understandable by non technical personnel.
