Compressed Dumps for an Archive Database

To use a compressed dump for an archive database:

  • Create the compressed dump using the with compression = <compression level> option of the dump database or dump tran command.

  • Create a memory pool for accessing the archive database.

Note: Dumps generated with “compress::” cannot be loaded into an archive database. Therefore, any references to compression in this chapter refer to dumps generated using the with compression = <compression level> option.

There are no compatibility issues with dumps using this compression option on traditional databases.
