The Importance of Peripheral DBA Skills

At I've written a blog on the importance of peripheral DBA skills. In the MySQL world, the following peripheral skills are very helpful for managing MySQL environments:
  • LAMP skills - Linux, Apache, PHP/Perl/Python.
  • Application Servers - knowledge of Apache, JBoss, LightHTTP, connection pooling, etc.
  • Monitoring skills - Enterprise Monitor, Nagios, Cacti, etc.
  • Ability to support developers - PHP, Java, .NET.
  • Networking skills.
