Today''s relational database management systems are made up of many complex components and managing these presents a growing challenge for database administrators. Every runtime environment can require different configurations to deliver adequate performance. Even within the same environment, demands can shift over time when workloads change. Keeping up with these demands requires continuous effort from the DBA. The goal of a modern DBMS must be to support the DBA in his work with automated processes and workflows that allow him to make quick and precise decisions. This work aims at describing and partially implementing a supportive system that will analyse the current DBMS configuration together with its workload to give recommendations on how to improve its performance and efficiency.
