Canceling a Backup
You can cancel the backup processes. You can use:
CTRL-C and enter stop (entering cont to continue the backup is then only possible with restrictions)
kill (but never kill -9 )
brarchive -fill stop to properly stop the archiving of offline redo log files started with brarchive -f . Do not use CTRL-C or a kill command to stop such BRARCHIVE runs, as this may terminate an active copy process.
