Object-relational mapping is common in most modern web frameworks such as Ruby on Rails. For the developer APIs, the ORM provides simplified interaction with the database and a productivity boost. However, the layer of abstraction the ORM provides can hide how the database is being queried. If you’re not paying attention, these generated queries can have a negative effect on your database’s health and performance.
Join Owen August 4th at 2 PM EST (6 PM GMT), as he discusses ways common Rails ORMs can abuse various databases and how VividCortex can be used to discover them. He will show the before and after effects on database performance, using VividCortex to measure results.
This webinar is useful for any developer or sysadmin working with Ruby On Rails. While we use our product to detect problems, it will be helpful even if you do not currently use VividCortex.
