Linux and Solaris Recipes for Oracle DBAs, 2nd Edition
is an example–based book on managing Oracle Database under Linux and Solaris. The book is written for database administrators who need to get work done and lack the luxury of curling up fireside with a stack of operating-system documentation. What this book provides instead is task-oriented coverage designed around the needs of the Oracle Database Administrator. Find the right chapter. Look up the task to perform. See the solution. Implement the solution straight away in your own environment. Get the job done.

New in this edition is coverage of Oracle's own Solaris operating system. Oracle Corporation has been working diligently to bring commonality between Solaris and and Linux, and this book takes advantage of those efforts to provide task-oriented solutions that work on common distributions of Linux such as Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Oracle Enterprise Linux while also accommodating the growing number of Oracle Solaris customers. Examples in the book match the tasks DBAs perform daily, even hourly. Solutions come first in the book, but alway are followed by close explanations of the details.
