RC_CONTROLFILE_COPY

This view lists information about control file copies on disk. A datafile copy record with a file number of 0 represents the control file copy in V$DATAFILE_COPY.

Column Data Type Description
DB_KEY NUMBER The primary key for the target database. Use this column to join with almost any other catalog view.
DBINC_KEY NUMBER The primary key for the incarnation of the target database. Use this column to join with RC_DATABASE_INCARNATION.
DB_NAME VARCHAR2(8) The DB_NAME of the database incarnation to which this record belongs.
CCF_KEY NUMBER The primary key of the control file copy 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.
RECID NUMBER The record identifier from V$DATAFILE_COPY. RECID and STAMP form a concatenated primary key that uniquely identifies this record in the target database control file.
STAMP NUMBER The stamp from V$DATAFILE_COPY. RECID and STAMP form a concatenated primary key that uniquely identifies this record in the target database control file.
NAME VARCHAR2(1024) The control file copy filename.
TAG VARCHAR2(32) The tag of the control file copy. NULL if no tag used.
RESETLOGS_CHANGE# NUMBER The SCN of the most recent RESETLOGS when the record was created.
RESETLOGS_TIME DATE The time stamp of the most recent RESETLOGS when the record was created.
CHECKPOINT_CHANGE# NUMBER The control file checkpoint SCN.
CHECKPOINT_TIME DATE The control file checkpoint time.
CREATION_TIME DATE The control file creation time.
BLOCKS NUMBER The number of blocks in the control file.
BLOCK_SIZE NUMBER The block size in bytes.
MIN_OFFR_RECID NUMBER Internal use only.
OLDEST_OFFLINE_RANGE NUMBER Internal use only.
COMPLETION_TIME DATE The time when the copy was generated.
STATUS VARCHAR2(1) The status of the copy: A (available), U (unavailable), X (expired), or D (deleted).
CONTROLFILE_TYPE VARCHAR2(1) The type of control file copy: B (normal copy) or S (standby copy).
KEEP VARCHAR2(3) Indicates whether this copy 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 COPY command was specified, then this column shows the date after which this file becomes obsolete. If the column is NULL and KEEP OPTIONS is not NULL, the file never becomes obsolete.
KEEP_OPTIONS VARCHAR2(11) The KEEP options specified for this control file copy. 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.
IS_RECOVERY_DEST_FILE VARCHAR2(3) This copy is located in the fast recovery area: YES or NO.
RSR_KEY NUMBER Unique key for the row in RC_RMAN_STATUS that created this backup piece.
SITE_KEY NUMBER Primary key of the Data Guard database associated with this file. 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.
