In Oracle 12c, there are many features and improvements in RMAN – Recovery Manager. One of the improvements is RMAN Multi-Section Backup. In this article, I have explained about this Multi-Section backup and it’s enhancements.
Multi-Section Backup Improvements
- Multi-Section option was introduced in Oracle 11g to handle large Datafiles backups.
- Using this option RMAN can split up or break up a large file into sections during the backup and recovery.
- This improves the performance of backup and recovery of a large Datafiles.
