Your customer has a global chat application that uses a multi-regional Cloud Spanner instance. The application has recently experienced degraded performance after a new version of the application was launched. Your customer asked you for assistance. During initial troubleshooting, you observed high read latency. What should you do?
You are configuring a new application that has access to an existing Cloud Spanner database. The new application reads from this database to gather statistics for a dashboard. You want to follow Google-recommended practices when granting Identity and Access Management (IAM) permissions. What should you do?
Your company uses Bigtable for a user-facing application that displays a low-latency real-time dashboard. You need to recommend the optimal storage type for this read-intensive database. What should you do?
Your company is shutting down their data center and migrating several MySQL and PostgreSQL databases to Google Cloud. Your database operations team is severely constrained by ongoing production releases and the lack of capacity for additional on-premises backups. You want to ensure that the scheduled migrations happen with minimal downtime and that the Google Cloud databases stay in sync with the on-premises data changes until the applications can cut over. What should you do? (Choose two.)
Your application uses Cloud SQL for MySQL. Your users run reports on data that relies on near-real time; however, the additional analytics caused excessive load on the primary database. You created a read replica for the analytics workloads, but now your users are complaining about the lag in data changes and that their reports are still slow. You need to improve the report performance and shorten the lag in data replication without making changes to the current reports. Which two approaches should you implement? (Choose two.)
You are managing a mission-critical Cloud SQL for PostgreSQL instance. Your application team is running important transactions on the database when another DBA starts an on-demand backup. You want to verify the status of the backup. What should you do?
Your digital-native business runs its database workloads on Cloud SQL. Your website must be globally accessible 24/7. You need to prepare your Cloud SQL instance for high availability (HA). You want to follow Google-recommended practices. What should you do? (Choose two.)
You plan to use Database Migration Service to migrate data from a PostgreSQL on-premises instance to Cloud SQL. You need to identify the prerequisites for creating and automating the task. What should you do? (Choose two.)
You are developing a new application on a VM that is on your corporate network. The application will use Java Database Connectivity (JDBC) to connect to Cloud SQL for PostgreSQL. Your Cloud SQL instance is configured with IP address 192.168.3.48, and SSL is disabled. You want to ensure that your application can access your database instance without requiring configuration changes to your database. What should you do?
Your team recently released a new version of a highly consumed application to accommodate additional user traffic. Shortly after the release, you received an alert from your production monitoring team that there is consistently high replication lag between your primary instance and the read replicas of your Cloud SQL for MySQL instances. You need to resolve the replication lag. What should you do?
You are the primary DBA of a Cloud SQL for PostgreSQL database that supports 6 enterprise applications in production. You used Cloud SQL Insights to identify inefficient queries and now need to identify the application that is originating the inefficient queries. You want to follow Google-recommended practices. What should you do?
Your organization is running a MySQL workload in Cloud SQL. Suddenly you see a degradation in database performance. You need to identify the root cause of the performance degradation. What should you do?
You are using Compute Engine on Google Cloud and your data center to manage a set of MySQL databases in a hybrid configuration. You need to create replicas to scale reads and to offload part of the management operation. What should you do?
Your customer is running a MySQL database on-premises with read replicas. The nightly incremental backups are expensive and add maintenance overhead. You want to follow Google-recommended practices to migrate the database to Google Cloud, and you need to ensure minimal downtime. What should you do?
Your company wants to migrate its MySQL, PostgreSQL, and Microsoft SQL Server on-premises databases to Google Cloud. You need a solution that provides near-zero downtime, requires no application changes, and supports change data capture (CDC). What should you do?
