Publisher: O'Reilly Media
Final Release Date: February 2001
Pages: 112

The Unix for Oracle DBAs Pocket Reference puts within easy reach the commands that Oracle database administrators need most when operating in a Unix environment. If you are an Oracle DBA moving to Unix from another environment such as Windows NT or IBM Mainframe, you know that these commands are far different from those covered in most beginning Unix books. To jump start your learning process, Don Burleson has gathered together in this succinct book the Unix commands he most often uses when managing Oracle databases. You'll be able to reach into your pocket for the answer when you need to know how to:

  • Display all Unix components related to Oracle, identify the top CPU consumers on your server, and even kill processes when necessary
  • Stack Unix commands into powerful scripts that can perform vital DBA functions
  • Monitor Unix filesystems, and automatically manage your trace files, dump files, and archived redo log files
  • Use essential server monitoring commands such as top, sar, and vmstat
And there's much more between these covers. If you need to get up to speed with Oracle on Unix, and quickly, this book is for you.

Unix for Oracle DBAs Pocket Reference Review

By K Gopalakrishnan

from Undisclosed

Comments about O'Reilly Media Unix for Oracle DBAs Pocket Reference:

It is a good book for DBAs coming from Non-Unix background. It gives the minimal unix support for the DBAs , but not complete, does not cover the tuning/trouble shooting part.

Highly recommended for Oracle on NT DBAs want to become Oracle on Unix DBA..But not for DBAs who are already running their oracle databases on Unix.
