Architecture

The Quest Backup Reporter is a Windows client application. It connects to multiple databases using SQL*Net and reports on information directly from the Oracle data dictionary, V$ views, and Oracle Recovery Manager Catalog. The Quest Backup Reporter does not make any modifications to either the Oracle database or RMAN configuration. It is solely a read-only reporting tool.

The Quest Backup Reporter is designed to monitor a large number of databases. It maintains a small configuration file on the client that contains connection information. All passwords are stored in an encrypted format. The Quest Backup Reporter does not currently maintain any repository of backup information.
