How to configure Oracle Enterprise Backup Utility backup scripts to use multiple backup streams to perform a database backup


Solution



To enable multiple backup streams with Enterprise Backup Utility (EBU), use the parameter "parallel" within your EBU backup script.

For example:

backup online
db_name = "SID"
parallel = 4       <<-----------
use_io_model = AIO
archivelog
archdelete
catalog = none
log = "../../online_SID_archiver.log"

This example would allow the EBU backup script to start four backup streams in parallel to perform the database backup with NetBackup.
