Backup and Recovery Concepts

<back to oca>

Describe the types of failure that may occur in an Oracle Database

  • Statement: a lack o f privileges, a lack of space can cause a statement failure
  • User process: an abnormal termination of user session -> PMON clean-up
  • Network
  • User error: a user that drops a table or delete same records
  • Instance: when the instance shuts down without synchronizing all the database files to the same system change number (SCN), requiring a recovery operation the next time the instance is started. Oracle automatically performs instance recovery using online redo logs and undo data.
  • Media: is any type of failure that results in the loss of one or more database files.
