This document describes a best practice methodology to ensure that sufficient performance data is pro-actively gathered enough at first occurrence of the problem to enable effective root cause determination. It can be used alongside the following document to both attempt to avoid problems and then if that is unavoidable, collect the information required for a quick diagnosis:
<Document 1482811.1> Best Practices: Proactively Avoiding Database and Query Performance issues
NOTE: These recommendations are best practices that apply to the MAJORITY of scenarios encountered by support. Each issue is different and specific additional diagnostic may be required in some circumstances to completely achieve a root cause diagnosis. It is not necessarily feasible to collect this targeted information up front for every issue since specific diagnostics required to resolve one particular issue may not be relevant in all cases. The goal is to provide a solid starting point that will collect enough for most issues to be resolved or to enable prompt recommendations for further tracing.
