Description - Oracle DBA Pocket Guide by David C. Kreines

The Oracle database is one of the most popular in the world, and for good reason. It's compatible, scalable, portable, and capable of performing incredibly fast. The advantages Oracle holds over its competition come with a price. However it's a highly complex database that's becoming more complex with every release. And this level of detail, of course, can begin to weigh on database administrators (DBAs). Fortunately, the "Oracle DBA Pocket Guide" from O'Reilly is on the case. This handy reference is designed to help administrators make more effective use of their time, by presenting a compact summary of DBA tasks in an easy-to-use form. With this book by your side, you'll have instant access to the most important concepts, best practices, tips, and checklists. The key topics of this book include: architecture, installation, configuration, tuning, and backup or recovery. Everything that you absolutely must know to do your job well is right there at your fingertips. Moreover, the "Oracle DBA Pocket Guide" covers Oracle Database 9i, as well as its latest release, Oracle Database 10g. The first database designed for enterprising grid computing, Oracle Database 10g significantly reduces the cost of managing the IT environment with a simplified install, reduced configuration and management requirements, and automatic performance diagnosis and SQL tuning. The latest in O'Reilly's line of bestselling Oracle titles, this book is an invaluable companion for any database administrator; new or experienced, interested in reviewing core Oracle concepts at a glance.
