Re: DBA Privileges and Developers

Who takes the heat if production slows to a crawl?

Is it "Those dumb developers writing bad SQL etc etc etc" ?

I'm a former DBA who is now writing code. Currently I cannot look at any of the 
DBA views / tables in any of environments.

The performance is a team effort. Oracle has placed a set of wonderful tools to 
figure out how to make the everything play together. Shame half the team cannot 
use the tools. 

So solution seems to be buy bigger hardware.
