Performance Tuning Basics 5 – Trace and TKPROF – Part 1: Trace

Tracing a SQL statement, generating TKPROF of the trace and understanding it carefully are some key steps that you will have to do when faced with a tough to break performance issue. This post will describe the methodology of this process.

Tkprof is very useful for diagnosing performance issues. It essentially formats a trace file into a more readable format for performance analysis. The DBA can then identify and resolve performance issues such as poor SQL, indexing, and wait events.

We faced a scenario in our database where users were complaining about database performance. Database seems to be hanging and queries were either stuck or not running at all.

It was also seen that UNDO tablespace consumption was increasing.
