Real World SQL Server Administration with Perl (Real World)by Linchi Shea
Synopses & Reviews
SQL Server Administration with Perl significantly empowers SQL Server database administrators and developers with Perl scripting techniques and takes SQL Server administration to the next level. This book is about solving SQL Server administrative problems with Perl. SQL Server Administration with Perl consists of a series of scenarios covering a wide range of SQL Server administrative topics. These are real-world scenarios that you hear DBAs discussing on the SQL Server forums and newsgroups-scenarios that DBAs run into in their day-to-day development or production environments. Readers will walk away from this book with two things: a DBA toolkit with well over 150 Perl scripts and problem-solving techniques they can apply to create even more tools for attacking other SQL Server administrative problems. Most of the sample problems are described and addressed in the context of SQL Server 7 or SQL Server 2000, but they are generally version independent. The next major release of SQL Server ("Yukon") may change some of the details, but it will not invalidate the nature of the presented approaches or solutions. All the Perl scripts are completely open and can be easily adapted to work with any version of SQL Server.
Real World SQL Server Administration with Perl is written with the goal of super-charging your SQL Server administration skills with Perl scripting, taking you to the next level of SQL Server administration.
