SAP on Oracle 19 Backup Performance

BCT (Block Change Tracking) is a feature in Oracle that helps to improve the speed and efficiency of incremental backups. When BCT is enabled, the database tracks changes to blocks of data, allowing RMAN to quickly identify which blocks have been modified and need to be backed up. This reduces the time required to perform incremental backups and reduces the amount of data that needs to be backed up, making the backup process faster and more efficient. The benefits of enabling BCT in Oracle include improved backup performance, reduced storage requirements, faster recovery times, and simplified backup processes.
