The Accidental DBA

A session at LinuxCon North America 2012

Friday 31st August, 2012

11:00am to 11:45am (PST)

So, you've inherited a production PostgreSQL server. Congratulations?

Increasingly, developers, network, and system administrators are being asked to act as de-facto DBAs. If you're in this situation, never fear! The amount of stuff you actually need to know for the care and feeding of a PostgreSQL instance is not substantial. You can learn it with speed and go back to your real job.

This presentation will cover the basic topics you need to know so that you know what to check and where to look it up, including:

  • Security
  • Performance
  • Monitoring
  • Updates & Upgrades
  • Replication
  • Backups & Recovery

The Accidental DBA is appropriate for anyone working in a small company or a startup which has PostgreSQL databases.
