While being a DBA is challenging and often rewarding, we often experience a lot of pain points that we wish would go away. So, for this month’s question, “What do you think are the most common DBA pain points?”, please share with us areas in your job where you experience the most pain. If you have any suggestions on how to make the pain go away, then offer them.
