Scheduling Log BackupsLocate this document in the navigation structure


Use the DBA Planning Calendar to perform log backups as specified in your planning concept.


To do this, proceed as described in the following sections:

  • Activating Automatic Log Backup

    Automatic log backups protect the log area from overflow.

  • Scheduling an Interactive Log Backup

    If automatic log backups are not activated, check there is enough storage space in the log area at regular intervals and schedule a log backup in good time.

  • Archiving Backup Files

    A log backup (automatic or interactive) usually backs up the log entries to backup files that you should archive at regular intervals. If you are using a backup tool from another provider, you can automate this procedure.
