How we design questions

Test candidates on core Sybase DBA Hiring Test topics

Sybase Administration: Sybase Administration refers to the management and configuration of a Sybase database system, including tasks such as user management, security settings, and database performance monitoring. This skill is measured in the test to assess the candidate's ability to effectively administer a Sybase database and ensure its smooth operation.

Database Security: Database Security involves implementing measures to protect the Sybase database against unauthorized access, data breaches, and malicious activities. It includes tasks like setting up user roles and permissions, encrypting sensitive data, and implementing access controls. Measuring this skill in the test helps evaluate the candidate's knowledge and proficiency in securing Sybase databases.

Data Backup and Recovery: Data Backup and Recovery involves creating regular backups of the Sybase database to prevent data loss and implementing strategies for recovering data in case of system failures or disasters. This skill is measured in the test to assess the candidate's ability to devise and execute effective backup and recovery plans to ensure data integrity and minimize downtime.

Performance Tuning: Performance Tuning focuses on optimizing the performance of the Sybase database by identifying and resolving issues that impact its efficiency and responsiveness. It involves tasks like analyzing query execution plans, tuning indexes, and optimizing database configuration parameters. Measuring this skill in the test helps gauge the candidate's proficiency in enhancing the performance of Sybase databases.

Query Optimization: Query Optimization refers to the process of improving the efficiency and speed of database queries by analyzing and fine-tuning the SQL statements. It involves techniques such as creating appropriate indexes, rewriting queries, and optimizing join operations. This skill is measured in the test to evaluate the candidate's ability to optimize Sybase database queries and improve overall system performance.

Database Monitoring: Database Monitoring involves continuous monitoring of the Sybase database to ensure its availability, performance, and adherence to defined standards. It includes tasks like tracking resource utilization, identifying and resolving bottlenecks, and generating performance reports. Measuring this skill in the test helps assess the candidate's proficiency in effectively monitoring and maintaining Sybase databases.

Database Troubleshooting: Database Troubleshooting refers to the ability to diagnose and resolve issues or errors in the Sybase database system. It requires strong analytical and problem-solving skills to identify the root cause of problems and implement appropriate solutions. This skill is measured in the test to evaluate the candidate's competence in troubleshooting and resolving database-related issues.

It includes tasks like database reorganization, statistics updates, and fragmentation management. Measuring this skill in the test helps evaluate the candidate's understanding and proficiency in maintaining and optimizing Sybase databases.

Data Migration: Data Migration involves transferring data from one database system to another, typically during system upgrades or consolidation projects. It requires expertise in data extraction, transformation, and loading (ETL) techniques specific to Sybase databases. Measuring this skill in the test helps assess the candidate's ability to successfully migrate data between Sybase database systems while ensuring data integrity and minimizing downtime.

Database Replication: Database Replication involves creating and managing redundant copies of the Sybase database to ensure data availability, scalability, and fault tolerance.

  • Sybase DBA

Can I see a sample test, or do you have a free trial?


The free trial includes one sample technical test (Java/ JavaScript) and one sample aptitude test that you will find in your dashboard when you sign up. You can use it to review the quality of questions and the candidate experience of giving a test on Adaface.

You can preview any of the 500+ tests and see the sample questions to decide if it would be a good fit for your requirements.

How do I interpret test scores?

The primary thing to keep in mind is that an assessment is an elimination tool, not a selection tool. A skills assessment is optimized to help you eliminate candidates who are not technically qualified for the role, it is not optimized to help you find the best candidate for the role. So the ideal way to use an assessment is to decide a threshold score (typically 55%, we help you benchmark) and invite all candidates who score above the threshold for the next rounds of interview.

I'm a candidate. Can I try a practice test?

No. Unfortunately, we do not support practice tests at the moment. However, you can use our sample questions for practice.
