This part of the book describes the built-in server management packages:
Chapter 11, Managing Session Information, introduces you to DBMS_SESSION and DBMS_SYSTEM; these two packages help you analyze and manage information about your current session.
Chapter 12, Managing Server Resources, presents DBMS_SPACE and DBMS_SHARED_POOL, which contain handy tools for database administrators to help them manage database-related resources on the server.
Chapter 13, Job Scheduling in the Database, shows you how to use DBMS_JOB to schedule the execution of stored procedures without the use of operating sytem-specific schedulers such as UNIX's cron.
