RC_BACKUP_REDOLOG

This view lists information about archived redo log files in backup sets. It corresponds to the V$BACKUP_REDOLOG view.

You cannot back up online logs directly: you must first archive them to disk and then back them up. An archived log backup set contains one or more archived logs.

Column Data Type 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.

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.

BRL_KEY

NUMBER

The primary key of the archived redo log 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 propagated from V$BACKUP_REDOLOG. 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$BACKUP_REDOLOG. 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 the backup: L (archived redo log).

COMPLETION_TIME

DATE

The time when the backup completed.

THREAD#

NUMBER

The thread number of the redo log.

SEQUENCE#

NUMBER

The log sequence number.

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.

FIRST_CHANGE#

NUMBER

The SCN generated when Oracle switched into the redo log.

FIRST_TIME

DATE

The time when Oracle switched into the redo log.

NEXT_CHANGE#

NUMBER

The first SCN of the next redo log in the thread.

NEXT_TIME

DATE

The first time stamp of the next redo log in the thread.

BLOCKS

NUMBER

The number of operating system blocks written to the backup.

BLOCK_SIZE

NUMBER

The number of bytes in each block of this redo log.

STATUS

VARCHAR2(1)

The status of the backup set: A (all pieces available), D (all pieces deleted), O (some pieces are available but others are not, so the backup set is unusable).

BS_RECID

NUMBER

The RECID value from V$BACKUP_SET.

BS_STAMP

NUMBER

The STAMP value from V$BACKUP_SET. BS_STAMP is different from SET_STAMP. BS_STAMP is the stamp of the backup set record when created in the control file, whereas SET_STAMP joins with SET_COUNT to make a unique identifier.

PIECES

NUMBER

The number of pieces in the backup set.

TERMINAL

VARCHAR2(3)

Indicates whether this log was created during terminal recovery of a standby database. Values are YES or NO.

PARTIAL

VARCHAR2(3)

Indicates that this archivelog is created during the activation of failover of a standby database and it contains partial archivelog contents. It is created by Zero Data Loss Recovery Appliance (ZDLRA) when the connection with the primary database is lost. A value of YES indicates that the log is partial.
