Oracle's kernel debug, diagnostics & tracing infrastructure

The Oracle RDBMS has implemented three APIs (generic debug, generic trace, numeric events) in its low-level kernel debug, diagnostics and tracing infrastructure since version 11g. This session provides an overview of these three APIs, how to get more information about its tracing possibilities/syntax and how to use/set them. In the end some real life client issues that were troubleshot with help of these three APIs are discussed.
You should be able to define and set your own custom actions/events for ORA errors and/or for specific C functions after this session.
Final note: There is a fair chance that it might get a bit geeky :-)
