What People Are Saying Chapter 6: Direct Memory Access, by Kyle Hailey Because of the developer in me, this was one of my favorite chapters. Kyle Hailey relays a story about having met and worked with an Oracle master named Roger Sanders and his "m2" application, which could access the memory Oracle was using directly. Having opened our minds to the possibilities, his story leads into a discussion on Oracle's SGA (Shared memory) and DMA, leaving you thirsting for more. A very memorable chapter for fans of the nuts and bolts, and yet is not that heavy a read.
