Go Up to Using Journal Archiving


The gbak -archive_journals command instructs InterBase to copy the completed journal files to the journal archive directory. To ensure that the archive always contains the most recently completed journal files, you should issue this command on a regular basis.

To copy completed journal files to the archive directory, use the following syntax:

gbak -archive_journals <dbname>

where <dbname> specifies the database that is being archived. The journal archive will grow in storage size as the most recently completed journal files are continually archived. For instructions on how to manage archive size, see Managing Archive Size.
