First of all, I would like to describe the goals of this blog.
I am not going  to cover all variety of interesting Oracle related topics. Instead, I will almost exclusively focus on Oracle spinlocks – latches and mutexes.


Once, I had asked before my seminar:
“I doubt that anything new can be said about such well known topic as Oracle latch”.
But I always think that the latch is one of the most mysterious and underestimated Oracle beasts.
To discuss it, I decided to start this very specialised blog…
