Pure DBA Science – some good postings

The internet blogging community on Oracle Database Administration tend to reffer each others posts, which I find very healthy and worthwhile. When a post is good you should read it and spread the word about it.

Here’s my tribute and selection to the blogs I find worthwhile reading, on some of the Best Blog Posts About Oracle Database Administration:

“Analytic Agony” – by Jonathan Lewis

“On the Importance of Diagnosing Before Resolving” – by Cary Millsap (yes, the OFA father! = OFA is one of the few Oracle acronyms where the “O” doesn’t mean “Oracle”)
