Guaranteed Restore Point with Flashback Database disabled generates too many flashback logs (Doc ID 566647.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 04, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 10.2.0.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

According to Oracle® Database Backup and Recovery Basics 10g Release 2 (10.2), chapter 5.1.4.2
using restore points without flashback logging should cause each modified block to only be saved one time. Yet tests show that updating the SAME data blocks each time causes more flashback logs to be generated and the flash recovery area usage grows.
