Most Important DBA Duties: Poll Results

Several weeks ago I blogged asking the question What Is The Most Important DBA Task, and I promised to share the results of that poll in a future blog post. This is that post!

Most Important DBA Duties

Of course, the results are not scientific… and there were only 38 total votes as of September 22, 2010… but, to me at least, the results were not surprising. In the lead, with 57.89% of the votes, right where it should be, is backup & recovery.

And the number two duty? That was not surprising either, performance monitoring and tuning.

What do you think? Did the poll results surprise you?

And if you didn’t vote, I am not closing the poll down so you can still go here and cast your ballot now.



I'm a strategist, researcher, and consultant with nearly three decades of experience in all facets of database systems development.
