Today I started with an Oracle Administration course and just finished the “Database Architecture” part. Well, not really new stuff for me. They told me think like: What’s the SGA, PGA (they didn’t say anything about the UGA), background, server and user processes, what’s the diffrence between database, instance and server and a little overview of which work the processes perform. All in all a course which go to less in detail of the components for me. All the stuff they told me I already know and with know I mean: I know it in much more detail! But to be fair, I’m sure that it’s not a bad course for people who starting to be a DBA. And that was just the first session of the course, so we”ll see if the others are more interesting for me!
