I'm new in administration of Oracle. From the existing system of my client, I found that there are many archived log files (over 100) left in the archive log folder. It is said a shell script is used to backup them to tape and clean up the logs with retention of 7 days.

They do not use RMAN since they don't know much about it, and downtime for job rerun in the application system is allowed. (Point-in-time recovery is not needed)

I havn't do backup or recovery before, so I don't know how difficult the RMAN is!

Does any one do backup with shell script only? (without 3rd party tool or RMAN) Or keeping lots of archived log is necessary for the Data Guard setting?

Very easy much more than shell scripts.
