Toastmaster Talk – DBA Toolkit

Here is a YouTube video of a short Toastmasters talk of mine about a DBA topic.  It was probably too technical for the audience but may interest the readers of this blog.

Here was a post about a similar topic:

    Hey Bobby, your presentation was right to the point. I used to be a member of a toastmaster club. It happens that I am also a DBA. I was wondering if you could let me know the script you use to diagnose and speed up slow databases. I carry out health check on databases on, almost, a daily basis. I would check for long running queries, blockings, any backup running, and so on. I would truly appreciate your reaction. Thanks
