About this book

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. Through a broad range of scenarios, this book shows you how to write Perl scripts (often in combination with T-SQL scripting) to solve a wide variety of SQL Server administration problems. This unique book will provide you with the techniques to conquer real-world problems that frequently trouble database administrators.

You will take away at least two things from reading this book: a database administration toolkit complete with over 150 Perl scripts, and problem-solving techniques perfect for attacking additional SQL Server administrative challenges. Many of the sample problems are described in SQL Server 7 or 2000 context, but in reality, the examples arent version specificall the Perl scripts are open and may be adapted to work with any version of SQL Server.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This is aimed at the DBA who is already running an efficient SQL server, but who wants to be forearmed against any future problems. … The aim of the book is to provide a toolkit of around 150 Perl scripts that can then be adapted and applied to a wide variety of SQL server problems … . There are also appendices that list useful resources … . The book as a whole could be quite useful … ." (Linux Magazine, March, 2004)

"The book demonstrates the capabilities of Perl by presenting individual scenarios, each designed to highlight a particular useful feature and how it might be applied to common SQL Server administration tasks. … Overall, this is a well-rounded book providing a good balance of SQL Server administration task specific information, backed up with some useful Perl-specific text." (Adrian Hibbert, Computer Bulletin, March, 2004)
