Oracle Database 11g: Administration Workshop II Release 2

Oracle Database 11g: Administration Workshop II Release 2

Duration: 5 Days
What you will learn
This course takes the database administrator beyond the basic tasks covered in the first workshop. The student begins
by gaining a much deeper understanding of possibly the most important job of a DBA – backup and recovery. The
concepts and architecture that support backup and recovery, along with the steps of how to carry it out in various ways
and situations, are covered in detail. This includes how to define and test your own backup and recovery scenarios.
Also, the DBA learns how to manage memory effectively and how to perform some performance evaluation and tuning
tasks, including using some of the advisors. All types of flashback technologies, scheduling jobs inside and outside of
the database, and controlling system resource usage are also covered.
Learn To:
Automate DBA tasks with the Scheduler
Diagnose and repair data failures with Flashback technology
Manage space to optimize database storage and to be able to respond to growing space requirements
Monitor and manage major database components, including as memory, performance, and resources
Secure the availability of your database by appropriate backup and recovery strategies
