Review:

Oracle DBA Tips and Techniques is a stimulating collection of data for any Oracle database administrator: written in a readable style, it breathes life into such topics, to take one at random, as the pinning of application code from the Tuning for Peak Performance chapter. The pros and cons are discussed, and implementation tips and sample scripts are given.

Sample scripts and listings do form a somewhat large proportion of the book's 740 pages. This is most noticeable in Chapter One: of its 94 pages, about 46 are filled with file listings and the 114-page appendix on dynamic performance views is also a list, plain and simple. There is, nevertheless, a great deal of useful information to be gained for squeezing better performance from a database on a day-to-day basis and also to aid faster recovery when disaster strikes. The chapters on "failover" ("the capability of a system to switch to an alternate Oracle Database if the primary instance becomes unavailable") and on backup and recovery techniques give insight into what can be achieved if database availability is deemed sufficiently important.

The chapter on designing high availability databases, although short, explains mirroring, multiplexing and the various levels of RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Disks) and when you might use them to best advantage, alongside other tips on table space and log management. Oracle 8I's Web-enabling features get a chapter too: there are overviews of the Internet File System, Java Virtual Machine and Oracle Application Server, for instance, with the usual scattering of tips and tricks.--Mark Whitehorn
