    Hi,

    The closest one is unload. But:
    - It won't save your system configuration
    - It won't save your databases schemas
    - It won't guarantee the integrity of the data (unless you lock the database in exclusive mode)
    - You must perform it for each table.

    I always recommend to backup the system using ontape. You can also use dbexport or onunload... and all of them are external commands.

    Hope it helps.
