While using the Cartridge for Oracle, an instance is backed up once a day using RMAN. The backups are incremental backups
This server is using 2 types of incremental:
Incremental level 1 which is a regular incremental backup
Incremental level 0 which is in fact a full backup
The following alarm is fired for the instance:
Foglight Cartridge for Oracle has generated a Warning alarm for Oracle instance <instanceName>on host <hostName>.
Alarm: DBO - Days Since Full Backup (alarm group: Storage)
Message: FOGLIGHT DEVELOPMENT, The last date that the full backup was completed successfully is <DATESTAMP>.
Created on: <DATE-TIME-STAMP>
If you are not interested to receive "Days Since Full Backup" alerts you can disable this alarm, but you will still be alerted on any failed backup jobs.
As we can see from sample RMAN command output below, the Type is 'Incr' and not 'Full', but the Level, 'LV' column is 0, so we can assume a Full backup has taken place even though a 'Full' backup was not scheduled.
