OCP Instructors Guide for Oracle DBA Certification

Chapter 10 - Ease of Administration

Good Documentation is Essential

Documenting processes, procedures and best practices is a task that is often considered to be boring and mundane. Most DBAs would rather perform virtually any other activity than sit in front of a screen using a word processor. As a result, creating documentation is often postponed until the DBA has a little free time to kill. Today’s database administration units are operating with smaller staffs, tighter budgets and ever-increasing workloads. The end result is that the documentation is either never created or created and not kept current.

But a robust detailed documentation library creates an environment that is less complex, less error-prone, reduces the amount of time DBAs spend learning new database environments and reduces the overall time spent on day-to-day support activities. DBAs are able to spend more time administering the environment than finding the objects they are trying to support.

The following list of suggestions will provide a good foundation for any database administration library:

  • Naming conventions
     

  • Servers
     

  • Databases
     

  • Tablespaces
