Description - Oracle Database Administration by David C. Kreines
The Oracle database administrator (DBA) performs an important set of tasks at an Oracle site: database monitoring, backup and recovery, troubleshooting, and tuning for reliability and performance. The DBA also plays a role in initial database design, system configuration, installation, and security planning. This book provides a quick reference to the myriad details an Oracle DBA needs on a day-to-day basis to help do his or her job well. Part One provides information and examples of how to perform a variety of critical DBA functions. The information in this section is presented in roughly the same sequence that these functions would be performed as the DBA plans and implements a new Oracle installation. Part Two provides detailed reference information (command syntax, etc) needed to perform DBA functions.
