Today I was surfing the internet for some scripts and found this site. I was blown away! http://www.lazydba.com Why Lazydba? The philosophy behind the name is this: A lazy dba is a SMART dba. A lazy dba is too lazy to look after databases manually , so they've written their own scripts, or bought a 3rd party piece of software in stead. A lazy dba doesn't want to be woken up in the middle of the night by a pager, so they proactively monitor their databases to make sure that there are no surprises. Remember, power steering was invented by a lazy engineer. So there.
