By Bekah Suttner, Blue Medora Database administrators (DBAs) can spend countless hours chasing down the root cause of slowdowns within their database landscapes. While many monitoring platforms help significantly reduce this downtime, communication between teams can still force DBAs to spend a significant amount of time working on the problems in their environment.

The Screen of Death, as most of us know it as, is the result of a system crash. Windows has his famous Blue Screen of Death (BSOD), and VMware has a purple screen of death (PSOD). Of course there is also a Black Screen of Death, which is usually when Windows systems are missing a […]
