    Lightbulb Unanswered: backup pending state

    udbv8 fp 5

    did any one try backup..... to /dev/null to remove a tablespace from backup pending state quickly. does it still read the entire tablespace?
    anyone has documentation on this?

    we do it all the time, yes it reads the entire tablespace, but it writes to dev/null which is allot quicker. We backed up'ed a 2 terabyte system to /dev/null in 2 hours, when it normally takes 6-8. We use this when it requires us for what ever reason.
