Using Plug-in for FileSystem to back up Oracle ACFS

Using Plug-in for FileSystem to back up Oracle ACFS

Oracle Automatic Storage Management (ASM) Cluster File System extends the Oracle ASM functionality to support non-database files. These files include Oracle binaries, trace files, alert logs, report files, and other application data files.

The non-database files cannot be backed up using RMAN, but you can use the Plug-in for FileSystem to back up the data stored in an Oracle ACFS volume.

Using the Oracle Flashback Database

Flashback Database: an overview

Introduced in Oracle 10g, Flashback Database lets you rewind an Oracle database to a previous time to correct problems caused by logical data corruptions or user errors as long as the datafiles are intact. Flashback Database is not true media recovery because it does not involve restoring physical datafiles. Flashback Database is preferable to using the RESTORE and RECOVER commands in some cases because it is faster and easier and does not require restoring the whole database.

For more information on Flashback Database, see Configuring Oracle Flashback Database and Restore Points in the Oracle Database Backup and Recovery User’s Guide.
