Format: Paperback
I have several years of DBA experience in a Windows environment. The company I work for just picked up a Linux contract, so I had to learn how to perform various DBA functions in a Linux environment...quickly. This book has helped out tremendously with the task I was presented. Chapter 2 was extremely useful since I was new to the environment. However, Chapters 5 and 7 are proving useful on a daily basis. I'm working on automating some of my tasks, so I will be spending a bit more time in Chapter 11.

The book is easy to read and the authors provide several good examples.

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By T. Roach on February 4, 2009
Format: Paperback
This is an excellent Linux reference for an Oracle DBA.

The chapters are as follows:

Chapter 1 - Getting Started
Chapter 2 - Working in the Shell
Chapter 3 - Managing Processes and Users
Chapter 4 - Creating and Editing Files
Chapter 5 - Managing Files and Directories
Chapter 6 - Archiving and Compressing Files
Chapter 7 - Shell Scripting
Chapter 8 - Analyzing Server Performance
Chapter 9 - Viewing and Configuring System Resources
Chapter 10 - Managing Server Software
Chapter 11 - Automating Jobs
Chapter 12 - Implementing ASM on Linux
Chapter 13 - Implementing RAC on Linux
Chapter 14 - Working Securely Across a Network
Chapter 15 - Managing X Windows
Chapter 16 - Managing Remote Servers with VNC

There are also two Appendixes:

A - RAID Concepts
B - Server Log Files

My favorite parts were Chapter 7 and Chapter 11. For DBA's, it is very powerfull to understand how to write shell scripts and automate them. Also, Chapters 12 and 13 are great references for a DBA who has to implement ASM and RAC on Linux.

My Linux admin has also used these chapters to look at some OS configuration issues with RAC and ASM as well as querying disks with oracleasm (for ASMLIB).

Definitely a great resource that has clear and concise steps to follow to get things up and running. No fluff here.

Format: Paperback
I have read the book and found it extremely helpful, It gives you the information you need right away with no lengthy explanation.
Unlike other ready-made UNIX scripts for Oracle DBAs, this book teaches you to write your own script (Chapter 7).
It is nice to see implementing RAC on Linux and Appendix on VNC.

I think Problem/Solution with "How it Works" approch is what makes this book a valuable TO-THE-POINT material for Oracle DBAs.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Very good mix of relevant OS and Oracle topics. A great reference book for a Linux Oracle DBA, or someone who has to manage a database on Linux, but doesn't have an Oracle DBA background.
