VSS Provider Memory Leak

(Doc ID 2224789.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 17, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


- Does Oracle still support VSS as a valid backup mechanism?
- Are there any memory or other defects reported with the current version of the VSS engine (provider/writer, etc.) in those Oracle versions and if so what's being done to fix it?
- What's Oracle's longer term direction on VSS with these databases? We must use VSS with our Symantec System Recovery Server Edition 2013 backup tool standard to correctly quiesce/snapshot Oracle 10g/11g databases.
