Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 Update 4
Veeam Agent Management Guide

Application-Aware Processing

If your computer runs the Oracle Database system, you can enable application-aware processing to create a transactionally consistent backup. The transactionally consistent backup guarantees proper recovery of Oracle databases without data loss.

To enable application-aware processing:

  1. At the Guest Processing step of the wizard, select the Enable application-aware processing check box.
  2. Click Applications.
  3. In the displayed list, select a protection group or individual computer and click Edit.

To define custom settings for a computer added as a part of a protection group, you must include the computer to the list as a standalone object. To do this, click Add and choose the computer whose settings you want to customize. Then select the computer in the list and define the necessary settings.

  1. On the General tab, in the Applications section, specify whether Veeam Agent for Linux running on a protected computer will process Oracle databases. You can select one of the following options:
  • Select Require successful processing if you want Veeam Agent for Linux to process Oracle databases. With this option selected, if an error occurs when processing an Oracle database, Veeam Agent for Linux will stop the backup process.

If you select this option, you will have to specify settings for database log handling on the Oracle tab of the Processing Settings window. For more information, see Oracle Archived Log Settings.

  • Select Try application processing, but ignore failures if you want Veeam Agent for Linux to process Oracle databases. With this option selected, if an error occurs when processing an Oracle database, Veeam Agent for Linux will not stop the backup process. Instead, Veeam Agent for Linux will skip this database and proceed to the next one. After the backup process completes, you will be able to restore data from the backup and restore databases that were successfully processed during backup.

If you select this option, you will have to specify settings for database log handling on the Oracle tab of the Processing Settings window. For more information, see Oracle Archived Log Settings.

  • Select Disable application processing if you do not want Veeam Agent for Linux to process Oracle databases. If you select this option, the Oracle tab of the Processing Settings window will become unavailable. You will be able to specify pre-freeze and post-thaw scripts for the job on the Scripts tab of the window.
