Exploring the transition from database admin (DBA) to database machine admin (DMA), courtesy of Oracle ACE Director Aup Nanda, is a very instructive learning experience for those unfamiliar with storage management concepts. See the Article Series (4 parts): Oracle Exadata Command Reference
The series has four parts:
- Part 1: Jumpstarting on Exadata – a quick primer on Exadata, its components and inner workings. If you are new to Exadata, this installment is definitely for you.
- Part 2: Command Categories, Configuration, and Basic Commands – an overview of the categories of commands you need to master, and a look at the different configuration activities after you get a brand-new Exadata rack
- Part 3: Storage Management – a detailed explanation of the CellCLI and DCLI commands, all their parameters and options, and how they are used for managing storage cells
- Part 4: Metrics and Reporting – a system is not very useful unless you can measure its effectiveness and fine-tune it. This installment will explain the commands related to gathering statistics and reports on Grid Control and how they are used for troubleshooting.
