V$OBSOLETE_BACKUP_FILES

V$OBSOLETE_BACKUP_FILES displays all obsolete backups, copies, and archived logs according to the current retention policy. This view requires that the database is set using the DBMS_RCVMAN.SETDATABASE procedure.

Column Datatype Description
PKEY NUMBER Primary key for the backup
BACKUP_TYPE VARCHAR2(32) Type of the backup:
  • BACKUP SET

  • COPY

  • PROXY COPY

FILE_TYPE VARCHAR2(32) Type of the file:
  • DATAFILE

  • CONTROLFILE

  • SPFILE

  • REDO LOG

  • PIECE

KEEP VARCHAR2(3) Indicates whether the backup has a retention policy different from the value for CONFIGURE RETENTION POLICY (YES) or not (NO)
KEEP_UNTIL DATE If the KEEP UNTIL TIME clause of the BACKUP command was specified, then this column shows the date after which the backup becomes obsolete. If the column is null and KEEP_OPTIONS is not null, the backup never becomes obsolete.
KEEP_OPTIONS VARCHAR2(13) KEEP options for the backup:
  • LOGS - RMAN keeps the logs needed to recover the backup

  • NOLOGS - RMAN does not keep the logs needed to recover the backup

If this column is null, then the backup has no KEEP options and will be made obsolete based on the retention policy.

STATUS VARCHAR2(16) Status of the backup:
  • AVAILABLE

  • UNAVAILABLE

  • EXPIRED

  • OTHER

FNAME VARCHAR2(1024) Name of the file

BS_STAMP NUMBER Stamp of the backup set from the controlfile record (valid only when BACKUP_TYPE is BACKUP SET)
