While the primary focus of both Oracle and SQL Server is on relational database management, there are a number of tools that come with each software package that are focused around monitoring and investigating the performance of the servers. These monitoring tools vary wildly between the two platforms, yet still have a lot in common because of shared fundamentals.

In their latest live ‘Oracle vs. SQL Server’ discussion, Jonathan Lewis (Oracle Ace Director, OakTable Network) and Grant Fritchey (Microsoft SQL Server MVP) will look at built-in performance monitoring mechanisms and tools.

As before, this will be a live discussion with no supporting slides, and will conclude with a Q+A session with Jonathan and Grant. Be prepared for a lively exchange that will not only entertain, but will teach you key concepts on Oracle and SQL Server.
