Post Production Turnover

This final set of meetings is held after the production turnover is complete.  Application logic errors and performance problem resolution are the prime topics of discussion.  A comparison of the actual performance to the anticipated performance of the application is also discussed.  The review and correction process, by its nature, is iterative.  The problems are identified, a plan of attack to solve them is agreed upon and additional meetings are scheduled to review the results.  As additional problems are identified, they are added to the list of problems to be solved.  This iterative process continues until all major performance issues and application logic errors are addressed.  The post production turnover meetings should include discussions on:

  • Review performance statistics collected (Oracle Enterprise Manager, SQL Trace, explain plan, BSTAT /ESTAT, autotrace, Oracle traces, V$ tables and Statspack)

  • Assess SQL coding techniques by reviewing explain plan output for transactions experiencing performance problems

    • Index usage

    • Local/join predicates
