These are the changes in Oracle Data Guard Concepts and Administration for Oracle Database Release 19c.

  • The process of flashing back a physical standby to a point in time that was captured on the primary is simplified by automatically replicating restore points from primary to the standby.

  • You can enable the Oracle Database In-Memory Column Store and Data Guard Multi-Instance Redo Apply at the same time on an Active Data Guard standby database.
  • DML operations can be performed on Active Data Guard standby instances. When an invalid PL/SQL object is run on an ADG standby database, the object is automatically recompiled.

  • Without impacting your current environment, you can test how fast-start failover will work by using the observe-only mode of fast-start failover.
  • The broker configuration can be exported and stored in a text file, thereby enabling you to create a backup of the current broker configuration.

Values set using these commands are directly applied to the database and are not stored in the broker configuration file. The new commands are as follows:
