Oracle - RMAN

This is very important application to execute Oracle Database backup.
With this tools and shells scripts I create database backup every day at night. Example script with description: rman TARGET / CATALOG rman/rman@orman - Establish connection to RMAN

This script execute hot backup to tape. In the first step database with control file will be transferred to tape, in the second step archive logs are transferred to tape. After this archived archive logs are deleted from hard disk.

run {
allocate channel t1 type 'SBT_TAPE' format 'df_hf_%t_%s_%p';
backup (database include current controlfile);
release channel t1;
allocate channel t1 type 'SBT_TAPE' format 'al_%t_%s_%p';
backup (archivelog all delete input);
release channel t1;
}
