Hi Steve

Over the years I've come to the conclusion that those individuals that call
themselves system admins would be better calling themselves DBA's who also
do a bit of system admin since they (should) effectively be doing both tasks
anyway. They would have more credibility with the unix guys and possibly it
would be easier to justify pay increases :)

You just need to learn about some of the unix dba jargon and tasks (managing
table extents is a good one) and take a look at some of the interesting
stuff they do which is becoming more important: for example, SQL tuning. IBM
has some good tools in Ops Navigator for doing this and it's worth exploring
on its own account.

Regards
Evan Harris
