This tab contains options for databases, tablespaces, data files, archived redo logs, file name formats, and database backup shares.
Table: Oracle tab fields
Number of parallel streams is the number of parallel backup streams that can be used in a backup operation.
Selectto enable read-only tablespace options. Possible values are and . means to skip the read-only tablespace during backup. means that RMAN backs up all files.
Selectto shut down the Oracle database and put it in the mount state.
Selectto direct the backup operation to not access offline data files.
Specify maximum limits
Selectto access several I/O and backup set limits. The following parameters should only have to be modified on rare occasions. If these values are not changed, the backup uses the default values defined in RMAN. RMAN default values usually provide the best performance.
Maximum I/O Limits parameters:
Maximum backup set limits parameters:
Backup Identifier Options
Backup set identifier: ( ) specifies a user-specified tag name for a backup set, proxy copy, data file copy, or control file copy. The tag is applied to the output files that the backup generates.
This option specifies a user-specified tag name when the option is used. The tag is associated with the data files that are located on the appliance and is used during the incremental merge process.
Archived Redo Log Options
Selectto include the archived redo logs in the full and the incremental schedule backups.
Selectto delete the archived redo logs after the selected number of backups are successful. Uncheck the box or set to 0 to skip the delete operation and retain the logs after backup.
Number of parallel streams controls the degree of parallelism within a backup. This number specifies the maximum number of connections between RMAN and a database instance. Each connection initiates an Oracle database server session on the target instance. This server session performs the work of backing up backup sets.
Specify Specify maximum limits to set custom limits for the archive redo logs.
User Specified Backup File Name Formats
Selectto set up formats for various backup file names for data files, archived redo logs, the control file, and Fast Recovery Area (FRA).
Ensure that the format that is specified for all RMAN backup piece names (except for auto-backups of the control file) uses the
By default OIP uses the following
Database Backup Share Options
These options let you set a time when backup sets and backup copies (data and control file copies) are automatically deleted from the appliance share. However, the files are only deleted if they have been successfully backed up from the share. The two options are Delete protected backup sets from share after and Delete protected backup copies from share after. The deletion is based on the age of the file in the share. The original dump time or the update time (if an incremental merge is done on the file) determines the age of the file.
These options are only available when the Backup Selections tab.option is selected in the
Use the drop downs to set the minutes, hours, days, or weeks.
Thedelete options can only be configured when the media server is a NetBackup appliance. This option does not work with any other type of media server. This feature requires a NetBackup appliance running software version 2.7.1 or later.
