Abstract: Compliance to industry best practices can easily be achieved with automation. This session will disseminate fundamental Data Guard best practices and demonstrate how DBAs can automate setup, configuration, and monitoring of Data Guard environments with assistance from the Date Guard Toolkit (DG Toolkit).

The original Data Guard Menu (DG Menu) was presented and documented in the Oracle Data Guard 11g Handbook published with Oracle Press. We took the DG Menu to another level and now it is called the DG Toolkit. We included a dedicated set of options for building physical standby with best practices in mind and made this into a mature toolkit that anyone can download from website. We have significantly updated the monitoring and setup menu options as well.

Come see Data Guard best practices in action. The session concentrates on:
o Building the Physical Standby
o Monitoring and Maintaining the Physical Standby
o Configuring Data Guard Broker
o Performing Backup and Recovery with RMAN
o Setting Archive Retention
o Performing Switchovers and Failovers

Learning Objective #1: Most importantly, learn how to build the physical standby with ease and automation using the DG Toolkit
Learning Objective #2: Learn how to monitor the physical standby database with DG Toolkit
Learning Objective #3: Learn how to setup the Data Guard Broker with DG Toolkit
Outline / Content Structure: Perform preliminary check prior to starting the Data Guard Build
1. Perform assessments on the source database
2. Perform assessments on the physical standby

Perform detailed steps to build the physical standby database
1. Look at building the physical standby with easy menu steps
2. Look at duplicating the physical standby database

Configure the Data Guard Broker

Perform monitoring of the Data Guard Environment
1. Monitor the physical standby for performance
2. See how far behind we are

Perform RMAN to disk configuration options
