ORACLE DATABASE 11G R2: ADMINISTRATION II – GTD9

Course Description

This course brings database administrators beyond a basic understanding of their duties and to transfer advanced skills needed to effectively administer an Oracle database installation within a large-scale enterprise. Important subject areas include advanced database configuration, performance monitoring and tuning, configuring for recovery, troubleshooting and fault diagnosis, and use of the extensive advisory framework. Sometimes configuration and operational problems can exist within an Oracle database installation because important technologies are either not fully understood or not properly implemented.

Advanced technologies which should be applied to any mission-critical database installation. The Database Resource Manager is an essential tool for database tuning and achieving optimum performance, and is often used in combination with the advisors. The Database Scheduler is a sophisticated tool which can automate many administration tasks and integrate the database into the larger data centre and systems infrastructure. All of the data

within a database installation is at risk unless one has designed, tested and implemented a robust backup and recovery strategy.

When a major failure occurs, a variety of recovery and troubleshooting techniques must be employed. The Oracle Recovery Manager (RMAN) tool is discussed with additional facilities including the Data Recovery Advisor, Redo Log File Size Advisor and MTTR Advisor. It is tempting to short-cut appropriate backup procedures if they perform poorly, so special attention is giving to performance optimization.
