How can I recover from an unplanned transaction? - Ask Toad

On Demand
  • Recorded Date:Apr. 30, 2019
  • Event:On Demand

A power user accidentally updates all the rows in your production table. But no one knows about it until the next day. What do you do? Yes, you have database backups (you do, don’t you?) and other safeguards in place. But bad things still happen to good databases. Is there a recovery approach other than restoring from backup, and then rolling the right transactions forward? Toad for Oracle has a little-known ability to ”mine” Oracle’s re-do logs.

What you will learn

In this session, learn how this one feature alone could save you time and aggravation when recovering from unplanned events to the database.
