completedTimeSpec

Purpose

Use the completedTimeSpec subclause to specify when a backup or copy completed.

Usage Notes

All date strings must be either:

  • Formatted according to the Global Technology date format specification currently in effect.

  • Created by a SQL expression that returns a DATE value, as in the following examples:

    • 'SYSDATE-30'

    • TO_DATE('09/30/2000 08:00:00','MM/DD/YY HH24:MI:SS')

    The TO_DATE function specifies dates independently of the current Global Technology environment variable settings.

Semantics

Syntax Element Description
AFTER 'date_string' Specifies the time after which the backup was completed (see Example 4-7).
BEFORE 'date_string' Specifies the time before which the backup was completed (see Example 4-9).

BETWEEN 'date_string'
AND 'date_string'
Specifies a time range during which the backup was completed (see Example 4-8). BETWEEN 'date1' AND 'date2' is exactly equivalent to AFTER 'date1' BEFORE 'date2'.

Examples

Example 4-7 Crosschecking Backups Within a Time Range

This example crosschecks the backup sets of the database made last month:

CROSSCHECK BACKUP OF DATABASE 
  COMPLETED BETWEEN 'SYSDATE-62' AND 'SYSDATE-31';

Example 4-8 Deleting Expired Backups

This example deletes expired backups of archived logs made in the last two weeks:

DELETE EXPIRED BACKUP OF ARCHIVELOG ALL
  COMPLETED AFTER 'SYSDATE-14';

Example 4-9 Listing Copies

This example lists image copies of data file /disk1/oradata/prod/users01.dbf made before March 9, 2007:

RMAN> LIST COPY OF DATAFILE '/disk1/oradata/prod/users01.dbf' COMPLETED BEFORE '9-MAR-07';
