DBA Basics – Intro to Database Maintenance

 

About the Presentation

Performance tuning, index design, etc… these are great skills to have, but there are four basic tasks that every DBA should know how to do backwards and forwards without even thinking about it. They are, in this order: Restore, Backup, Index Maintenance, and Consistency Checking. After attending this session, you will be able to restore a database in a few different ways, take the right backups in order to restore that database, know how and when to maintain the indexes and statistics, and check for database corruption.
