    It’s a very important article all of DBAs. I encountered once the last six hours of data was lost at a company with 1000transaction/sec system. The main reason was the head of the recordig unit was broken so the data was also.

    I recommend to everbody to check time by time all of their data to avoid such a big problem.

    It’s a very usefully procedure, needed for many production database instances to ensure the restore from tape backups level 0.

    Just imagine a restore of 15 Ultrium IV tapes for about 35 hours with a failure in the last tape (that’s happen to us 1 time)
