    i need to run jobs at predifned intervals of time and we have decided to automate this jobs i was wondering what to do use dbms_jobs package supplied by oracle or use cron and a shell script.

    my task inculde

    a)taking incremental exports
    b)cleaning up archived log directory
    c)other routine space administration tasks and paging them 2 a dba.

    i am runing oracle 8.1.6 on redhat linux.source code or shell script examples to achieve the above tasks would be of great help.

    thanks in advance

    For A and B, Use Shell scripts.

    For C, Use DBMS_JOB package.

    Thanks.
