Sorry, its hard to understand what exactly you are looking for.
1. Yes, as "write suspend" is a dead stop of I/O. SC with CG (does the fencing of volumes during snap operation), will ensure snapshot gets done within seven seconds or timeout and put the database into a normal state. At the end it depends upon how busy the database is.
2. You can run more than 3 jobs just scheduler will only allow 3 active jobs
3. The Application piece is usually unique and there is no Code in Snap Creator to specifically handle Application Consistency, instead there is a framework where you can Integrate Application Consistency (Backup) scripts/modules into Snap Creator. Snap Creator does not handle directly talking to applications such as Oracle to achieve application consistency, instead you can instruct Snap Creator to call a application backup script. These scripts are called modules. Most applications should be quiesced before a snapshot is taken to ensure the snapshot taken is consistent with the application itself.
Hope it helps.
Re: SnapCreator DB2 9,7 plugin data, logs and simultaneous backup
1 - SC db2 with plugin, you must write suspend with CG for the volumes of data, activelog, and archivelog?
If you would like to keep archive log in the same backup flow you could do that, DB2 doesn't require "write suspend" enabled during the snap of archive log. I do have customers running archive log snaps separately, outside of snap creator or thru snap creator without including other volumes, with the frequency depending on your SLA's.
2 - SC does not generate two tasks at once. I can generate a simultaneous backup to two environments?
first thank Ravi and Bobby for answering my question.
1 - From what you tell me and what I read in the TR, then it is recommended?:
data volumes: db2 plugin with WR and CG
Active log: db2 plugin with WS and CG
Archive log: CG
if so, then it would have to make two configuration files:
"Config_Full": -> Active data and log volumes -> db2 plugin with WS and CG
"Config_Archivelog": -> Archive log -> only CG
The frequency depends on the requirements of the customer.
2 - the client asked to perform processes consistent snapshot for 2 db simultaneously (PRD y CRM). The idea is that both machines have a same Point In Time for restore purposes. As I can do with snapcreator?
I'm still reading the TR to see if you can implement ACS, instead of Snapcreator My native language is Spanish, so go slow in reading. As I read so far, is only licensing?
