Scheduling Oracle export jobs

For complete details on scheduling Oracle jobs, se Dr. Tim Hall's book "Oracle Job Scheduling".

Also see scheduling Oracle import and export jobs.

For scheduling DBA maintenance scripts, see the scripts in the bestselling book "Oracle Tuning: The Definitive Reference":

In this article, Fuchs Hanspeter show how to avoid embedding the Oracle “system” password in a scheduled export job by skipping a shell script and cron, and using the dbms_scheduler utility instead.

Below we see that the export is scheduled with a call to the create_job procedure:

   job_class_name             =>  'backup', 
   resource_consumer_group    =>  'DEFAULT_CONSUMER_GROUP',
   comments                   =>  'Backup, Export etc');
   job_name           =>  'full_export',
   job_type           =>  'STORED_PROCEDURE',
   job_action         =>  'SP_FULLEXPORT.EXP',
   start_date         =>  '30-MAR-06 07.00.00 PM Europe/Zurich',
   repeat_interval    =>  'FREQ=DAILY;BYHOUR=19',
   end_date           =>  '30-MAR-22 07.00.00 PM Europe/Zurich',
   job_class          =>  'backup',
   comments           =>  'Full Export');
  DBMS_SCHEDULER.ENABLE ('full_export');

Scheduling Oracle exports with the internal scheduler also has the benefit or re-starting if the database is down during the scheduled export time, and a Cron will not re-schedule a missed job.
