Procedure

To do this, proceed as described in the following sections:

Activating Automatic Log Backups

Automatic log backups protect the log area from overflow.

Scheduling an Interactive Log Backup

If automatic log backups are not activated, check there is enough storage space in the log area at regular intervals and schedule a log backup in good time.

Archiving Backup Files

A log backup (automatic or interactive) usually backs up the log entries to backup files that you should archive at regular intervals. If you are using a third-party backup tool, you can automate this procedure.
