Database Performance and Emergencies Still Plague DBAs

Database related issues still keep DBAs busy with minor changes in the distant future.

Database performance issues and emergencies, you would think, should be somewhat on the down-side with the enormous amount of vendor tools and experience in the database community. Unfortunately, in a recent survey, it is still reported that DBAs have their hands full with performance and emergency issues that plague them continually. Consider:

  • 43% of DBAs lose sleep with database performance issues
  • 37% of DBAs have about 5 emergencies every year
  • 9% of the 37% deal with more than 20 every month
  • 54% say they have to spend the night in the office because of emergencies
