One of the biggest issues we have in health is poor monitoring. This is also the case in health of many of our systems. As a DBA, I’m always concerned about the health of my database servers; mainly because I would like to keep my job and not get the 3am call that something has gone terribly wrong. However, with that said, no matter how careful we are there is always the probability of something bad going wrong.
This is part three of my lessons learned and will have more of a focus on Database monitoring and Disaster recovery.
