The Importance of Peripheral DBA Skills

At http://trubix.blogspot.com I've written a blog on the importance of peripheral DBA skills. In the Solaris world, the following peripheral skills are very helpful for managing database environments:
  • Solaris administration.
  • ZFS.
  • Containers and Zones.
  • Dtrace.
  • Application Servers - knowledge of Oracle, Apache, JBoss, LightHTTP, connection pooling, etc.
  • Monitoring skills - OEM, Enterprise Monitor, Nagios, Cacti, etc.
  • Ability to support developers - PHP, Java, .NET.
  • Networking skills.
  • Storage.
From my perspective, the one area DBAs should learn more about is in storage.  It's not about being a storage expert, its about understanding the basics and being able to communicate with storage teams and system administrators.
