Review:

In Oracle SQL & PL/SQL Annotated Archives, authors Loney and Carmichael have assembled a topical collection of SQL & PL/SQL scripts for Oracle7 and Oracle8. Although this book is not by any means a tutorial for the database's programming language, even skillful database administrators can learn much from the illustrated techniques.

The book begins with a chapter of Oracle8-specific scripts that include warning indicators for password expirations, scripts for determining value distributions across table and index partitions, and others. The rest of the chapters are devoted to particular topics. The first section addresses performance management and includes several scripts for collecting statistics and managing the System Global Area. These performance-related scripts are extremely valuable for any developer.

Next comes a series of scripts related to monitoring transactions, diagnostic utilities to analyze data definition, and similar scripts for managing objects and space. Then it's on to diagnostic and utility scripts for managing users and some general database scripts. The book wraps up with a lengthy appendix that serves as an excellent reference to the PL/SQL language.

Each chapter begins with summary of its scripts, and they are also included on the CD-ROM. Explanatory text is clearly identified as annotations, but the majority of the book consists of highly technical reading. While this book does not make for a very entertaining read, it provides Oracle administrators with powerful tools they can turn to in a pinch. --Stephen Plain
