Just as an automobile engine has a lot of interconnected parts that must all work well together, and just as an automobile mechanic must understand the individual parts and how they relate to the whole, the Oracle database engine has a lot of interconnected parts, and the database administrator must understand the individual parts and how they relate to the whole. This chapter provides a short overview of the Oracle engine. Of course, it is impossible to document the workings of a complex piece of machinery in a short chapter-for a full treatment, you will have to refer to Oracle Database 11g Concepts which, like all the reference manuals, is searchable and downloadable for free at the Oracle web site.
