O'Reilly Releases Oracle Database Administration: The Essential Reference

SEBASTOPOL, CA -- Oracle database administration requires a vast amount of information and an ability to perform a myriad of tasks- from installation to tuning to network troubleshooting to overall daily administration. Oracle provides many tools for performing these tasks; the trick is knowing what tool is right for the job, what commands are needed to issue (and when), and what parameters and privileges to set. As every database administrator (DBA) knows, this all must be done under pressure, while facing crisis after crisis.

Oracle Database Administration provides a concise reference to the enormous store of information an Oracle DBA needs every day (as well as what's needed only when disaster strikes). It's crammed full of quick-reference tables, task lists, and other summary material that both novice and expert DBAs will use time and time again. It covers the commands and operations new to Oracle8, but also provides Oracle7 information for sites still running earlier versions.

Oracle Database Administration also includes a resource summary with references to additional books, web sites, and other online and offline resources of special use to Oracle DBAs.
