17. Backing Up and Restoring the Database : Journals
Share this page                  
For an incremental backup of your database, use journals in combination with checkpoints.
While checkpoints provide you with a snapshot of the database, journals keep track of all changes made to the database after the last checkpoint.
Note:  When you are journaling a database, you should take regular checkpoints of your database to minimize recovery time.
Note:  Journaling is supported at the database level only (not at table- or user-level).
