CSI became the most watched program on American television in 2002. The popular program, and the two spin-off shows, is about forensic detectives who use evidence to solve cases. A crime scene investigator is responsible for complex investigations, collecting evidence, evaluations, and reporting. This is a tongue in cheek association of crime scene investigation practices and the steps for answering database performance questions. The course of action includes defining the crime, identifying the perpetrator, determining strategies, methods of collecting evidence, and interpreting the evidence. The investigating DBA is presented the foundation for developing their problem solving approach. While the CSI/DBA’s efforts may not be part of a criminal trial, these efforts could postpone significant hardware upgrades or prevent performance penalties.
