do we have an option like some software which automatically(makes backup after a specified period like after every hour) makes backup of the whole database as .dmp and saves it to specified location?????
1) Although a dump file is a logical backup, I sincerely hope you are not using it as your primary method of backing up a database. You need physical backups (RMAN or user-managed). Logical backups can compliment but not replace physical backups.1 person found this helpful
2) You could certainly schedule the export utility to run regularly and to write files to whatever location you desire. It would be exceedingly unusual to want a full database export every hour however. That generally implies that you're doing something wrong.
3) This doesn't appear to relate to database security. It would probably be more appropriate in the Export/Import/SQL Loader and External Tables forum or even in the Database - General forum.
