Hot Backup

by Aaron H. In reply to Hot Backup

In some backup software packages there are extra features for this. Veritas has a special plug-in specifically for backing up Oracle while it is running. If you go to www.oracle.com and then look under Enterprise Applications it will get you to the info.

Also, if your database is doing scheduled backups to the hard drive, then you can just worry about backing those up and the transaction logs for the time between backups. This will provide you a complete ability to recover and not cost you anything.
