OK, what's the catch?
Roswell, GA (PRWEB) October 14, 2009
In an effort to address the 2009 Economic Crisis, Silos-Connect Technologies, in conjunction with ActiveBase Ltd, is pleased to announce its Software Stimulus Package by offering one of its break-through software components free of charge.
Silos-Connect President, Tony Cannizzo, says, "The recession is real, it is ugly, and it is not going away soon. Enterprise IT is struggling to do business on a bootstrap. The corporate mantra <do more with less> has taken on totally new meaning. Tools are in high demand, but unbudgeted capital expenditures are just not happening. We are stepping up to help the IT community in a special way. By providing a world-class tool completely free of charge, we will enable critical development and support personnel to take advantage of a new tool, without having to worry about budget constraints."
ActiveBase SQL ExpertTM for Oracle helps the DBA and SQL developer by automating the process of finding the right Oracle Hint, for a given SQL statement. The "right Hint" is the one that, when added to the original SQL statement, produces the lowest result (shortest elapsed time or the least CPU or I/O). Oracle Hints change the way Oracle executes queries, without changing the source code or the database.
Finding the right Hint using existing current methods is an iterative and highly-time consuming process, and is simply not feasible. Often times, you may find a "good" solution, but not always the "best". A statement with a cost of 175, will run certainly better with a cost of 142, but it would run even better than that with a cost of 125. Wouldn't you rather know that you got the best alternative, rather than just a good one?
Through its simple graphic interface, ActiveBase SQL ExpertTM for Oracle completely automates the process and guarantees finding the best alternative without any extra effort. Just:
1. Enter manually (from your source-code), or select un-tuned SQL requests from the Oracle SGA using 'Hotspot' viewer.
2. Analyze: Find different alternatives (SQL + 'Hints') generating multiple unique execution plans.
3. Set benchmark options: Select alternatives to execute, total benchmark time, automatic cancelling, session and parallel degree settings.
4. Run Benchmark: execute the alternatives against a database to find the best result.
5. Analyze results: Detailed benchmark audit trail with a color-coded summary view quickly identify the best improvement.
The software is available on demand by download and is absolutely offered on a no-charge basis. The knee-jerk reaction to this is "OK, what's the catch?" Cannizzo goes on to say, "This is a perfectly understandable and reasonable question. I would be asking the same thing myself. Fact of the matter, there is no catch: unless you consider it a catch that the software will produce pop-ups that unashamedly describe the other ActiveBase products. After all, we are in business."
