hello,
in my business I have a little server farm with 3 oracle server db installation
Since more than 10 years I do all the activities to manage these server (tablepaces check, patches, logs check etc...) but I cannot call me a real DBA (I do also make a lot of other activities in my office so I cannot spend so many time for these activities)

I learn by myself, "on field"...

now I have a nice job opportunities, oracle DBA, and I'd like to know what are the activities that a real DBA makes

a little explanation of the job

thank you

Embarassed

First be able to find the information by him/herself without asking in a forum for a FAQ.

I guess that chapters from the Administrator's Guide describe DBA's job quite well. Though, 2 day DBA might be a good beginning as well.

Michel, any chance you could find out, for me, how to tie my shoelaces. I've looked everywhere but there's just no information out there
PS, if you could also tell me in which order I should put on my trousers and shoes, I would be appreciative.

An oracle dba precisly does nothing.
This question has no practical answer.
Because a DBA job has no output.His work is not seen.No one recognizes its importance until the shit hits the fan.
