  2. Identify the syntax of the backup command
  3. Discuss how and why Recovery Manager multiplexes backup sets
  4. Demonstrate how Recovery Manager parallelizes backup sets

Any backup and recovery plan that you create will no doubt make extensive use of backup sets.

New terms

The following term was introduced in this module:
  1. formatspec: A variable placeholder. The formatspec tag can be used as part of the BACKUP command, which means it will apply to all backup specs in the command or on an individual backup_spec. The tag can also be used in the ALLOCATE command to apply to all files which will use that channel.

In the next module, you will learn some advanced techniques for using Recovery Manager.
