RC_BACKUP_PIECE_DETAILS

RC_BACKUP_PIECE_DETAILS contains detailed information about all available backup pieces recorded in the recovery catalog.

The semantics of most columns duplicate the RC_BACKUP_PIECE recovery catalog view. This view is primarily intended to be used internally by Enterprise Manager.

Column Data Type Description

SESSION_KEY

NUMBER

Session identifier. Use in joins with RC_RMAN_OUTPUT and RC_RMAN_BACKUP_JOB_DETAILS.

SESSION_RECID

NUMBER

With SESSION_STAMP, uniquely identifies output for this backup job from RC_RMAN_OUTPUT.

SESSION_STAMP

NUMBER

With SESSION_RECID, uniquely identifies output for this backup job from RC_RMAN_OUTPUT.

DB_NAME

VARCHAR2(8)

The DB_NAME of the database incarnation to which this record belongs.

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 DBID of the database incarnation to which this record belongs.

BP_KEY

NUMBER

The primary key for the backup piece 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 backup piece RECID from RC_BACKUP_PIECE. RECID and STAMP form a concatenated primary key that uniquely identifies this record in the target database control file.

STAMP

NUMBER

The backup piece stamp propagated from V$BACKUP_PIECE. RECID and STAMP form a concatenated primary key that uniquely identifies this record in the target database control file.

BS_KEY

NUMBER

The primary key of the backup set to which this record belongs in the recovery catalog. Use this column to join with RC_BACKUP_SET or RC_BACKUP_PIECE.

SET_STAMP

NUMBER

The SET_STAMP value from V$BACKUP_SET. SET_STAMP and SET_COUNT form a concatenated key that uniquely identifies the backup set to which this record belongs in the target database control file.

SET_COUNT

NUMBER

The SET_COUNT value from V$BACKUP_SET. SET_STAMP and SET_COUNT form a concatenated key that uniquely identifies the backup set to which this record belongs in the target database control file.

BACKUP_TYPE

VARCHAR2(1)

The type of backup. Possible values are D for data file or control file backups, I for incremental backups, and L for archived log file backups.

INCREMENTAL_LEVEL

PIECE#

NUMBER

The number of the backup piece. The first piece has the value of 1.

COPY#

NUMBER

COMPLETION_TIME

DATE

The time when the backup piece was completed.

ELAPSED_SECONDS

NUMBER

The duration of the creation of the backup piece.

STATUS

VARCHAR2(1)

The status of the backup piece: A for backup pieces that are AVAILABLE. (The value is always A, because this view shows only available backup pieces.)

BYTES

NUMBER

The size of the backup piece in bytes.

IS_RECOVERY_DEST_FILE

VARCHAR2(3)

YES if this backup piece is located in the fast recovery area. NO otherwise.

RSR_KEY

COMPRESSED

VARCHAR2(3)

YES if this backup piece is compressed. NO otherwise.

SITE_KEY
