RC_BACKUP_SET

This view lists information about backup sets for all incarnations of the database. It corresponds to the V$BACKUP_SET view. A backup set record is inserted after the backup has successfully completed.

Column Datatype Description
DB_KEY NUMBER The primary key for this database in the recovery catalog. Use this column to join with almost any other catalog view.
DB_ID NUMBER The unique database identifier.
BS_KEY NUMBER The primary key of the backup set in the recovery catalog. If you issue the LIST command while RMAN is connected to the recovery catalog, then this value appears in the KEY column of the output. Use this column to join with RC_BACKUP_PIECE.
RECID NUMBER The backup set RECID from V$BACKUP_SET. RECID and STAMP form a concatenated primary key that uniquely identifies this record in the target database control file. Use either RECID and STAMP or SET_STAMP and SET_COUNT to access V$BACKUP_SET.
STAMP NUMBER The backup set STAMP from V$BACKUP_SET. RECID and STAMP form a concatenated primary key that uniquely identifies this record in the target database control file. Use either RECID and STAMP or SET_STAMP and SET_COUNT to access V$BACKUP_SET.
SET_STAMP NUMBER The SET_STAMP value from V$BACKUP_SET. SET_STAMP and SET_COUNT form a concatenated key that uniquely identifies this record in the target database control file. Use either RECID and STAMP or SET_STAMP and SET_COUNT to access V$BACKUP_SET.
SET_COUNT NUMBER The SET_COUNT value from V$BACKUP_SET.SET_STAMP and SET_COUNT form a concatenated key that uniquely identifies this record in the target database control file. Use either RECID and STAMP or SET_STAMP and SET_COUNT to access V$BACKUP_SET.
BACKUP_TYPE VARCHAR2(1) The type of the backup: D (full backup or level 0 incremental), I (incremental level 1), L (archived redo log).
INCREMENTAL_LEVEL NUMBER The level of the incremental backup: NULL, 0, or 1.
PIECES NUMBER The number of backup pieces in the backup set.
START_TIME DATE The time when the backup began.
COMPLETION_TIME DATE The time when the backup completed.
ELAPSED_SECONDS NUMBER The duration of the backup in seconds.
STATUS VARCHAR2(1) The status of the backup set: A (all backup pieces available), D (all backup pieces deleted), O (some backup pieces are available but others are not, so the backup set is unusable).
CONTROLFILE_INCLUDED VARCHAR2(7) Possible values are NONE (backup set does not include a backup control file), BACKUP (backup set includes a normal backup control file), and STANDBY (backup set includes a standby control file).
INPUT_FILE_SCAN_ONLY VARCHAR2(3) This backup set record was created by the BACKUP VALIDATE command. No real backup set exists. This record is only a placeholder used to keep track of which datafiles were scanned and which corrupt blocks (if any) were found in those files.

If COMPATIBLE is set to 11.0.0 or greater, then RMAN does not populate this column.

KEEP VARCHAR2(3) Indicates whether this backup set has a retention policy different from the value for CONFIGURE RETENTION POLICY. Possible values are YES and NO.
KEEP_UNTIL DATE If the KEEP UNTIL TIME clause of the BACKUP command was specified, then this column shows the date after which this backup becomes obsolete. If the column is NULL and KEEP OPTIONS is not NULL, then the backup never becomes obsolete.
KEEP_OPTIONS VARCHAR2(11) The KEEP options specified for this backup set. Possible values are NOLOGS, BACKUP_LOGS, LOGS, and NULL. NOLOGS indicates a consistent backup made when the database was mounted. BACKUP_LOGS indicates that the backup was made in open mode, so archived log backups must be applied to make it consistent. LOGS indicates a long-term backup made with the LOGS keyword, which is now deprecated. NULL indicates that this backup has no KEEP options and becomes obsolete based on the retention policy.
BLOCK_SIZE NUMBER Block size of the backup set.
SITE_KEY NUMBER Primary key of the Data Guard database associated with this backup set. Each database in a Data Guard environment has a unique SITE_KEY value.You can use SITE_KEY in a join with the RC_SITE view to obtain the DB_UNIQUE_NAME of the database.
MULTI_SECTION VARCHAR2(3) Y if this is a multisection backup; otherwise null.
