    God Bless on your exam grjohnson!

    I read 3 chapters from the Sybex B&R and i personally think its terrible (esp the Q/A part). should i continue reading the book? i might be wasting my time, what do you guys think?

    I have the Oracle Backup & Recovery Guide (from Oracle CD) will this be a good study guide or do i need to buy another book like ExamCram?

    Thanks

    Hi!

    I came across with some parameters:

    DBWR_IO_SLAVES
    LGWR_IO_SLAVES
    ARCH_IO_SLAVES
    BACKUP_DISK_IO_SLAVES
    BACKUP_TAPE_IO_SLAVES

    How are these parameters used in relation to B&R, are these parameter still supported by 8i, the first 3 chapters of the Sybex B&R book never mentioned it.

    Thanks

    HI Maverick, Grjohnson and NDT,
    I Welcome you all to share the thread. Do you think B& R exam cram is a good book along with Sybex and Oracle 8i DBA certification guide published by Oracle. Just a suggestion and FYI. I find a lot of books and materilas auctioned in E-bay.
    All the best to all

    If you have the SYBEX B&R book, it's worth a read but doesn't go into enough detail. Also, jump back and review the Arch and Admin chapter on REDO LOGS, ARCHIVING and multiplexing the CONTROL FILES.

    Personally I'd purchase teh *i B&R exam cream by Debbie Wong.

    The Oracle Documentation is good, but can go into TOO MUCH detail than what sometimes required for exams. But are good learning material nevertheless.

    D Maverick, those parameters are still used in 8i, they are . Basically SLAVE processes for background processes.

    BACKUP_DISK_IO_SLAVES
    BACKUP_TAPE_IO_SLAVES

    Are specifically used to speedup backup and recovery processes.

    BACKUP_DISK_IO_SLAVES is elminiated in 8i, eliminated parameter means that setting their value has no effect
    whatsoever.

    With using BACKUP_TAPE_IO_SLAVES in an unpatched 8.1.5 you might hit BUG 709582 RMAN: OERI:12333 possible on SHUTDOWN IMMEDAITE.

    eliminated sometime means they are hidden not necessary eliminated, they are parameters with _ in front
