RMAN Merged Incremental Backup Ignores SECTION SIZE
Last updated on MAY 23, 2018
Applies to:Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 126.96.36.199 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
Customer is running the following RMAN backup script, as shown here.
backup section size 2G incremental level 1 for recover of copy datafilecopy format '/oradata/oracle/indx/%b' with tag 'img_copy'
backup section size 2G incremental level 1 for recover of copy datafilecopy
format '/oradata/oracle/data/%b' with tag 'img_copy' datafile
However, RMAN ignores the SECTION SIZE clause and thus does not backup the datafiles in parallel.
No changes, wanting to parallelize the datafile copy taken by RMAN's merged incremental backup strategy.
