Instance tuning uses the same general method of observing a problem, diagnosing the problem and implementing a solution. The instance tuning lessons cover the details of major tunable components and describe how you can influence the instance behavior. For each lesson, we will examine the relevant components of the architecture.
The class only discusses the architecture to the level required to understand the symptoms and solutions. More detailed explanations are left to other courses, reference material and Oracle documentation.
The last lesson of this course is a recap of the best practices discovered in the previous lessons, along with miscellaneous recommendations. The goal is to finish the course with a best practices list for students to take away.
