Database management system


An Oracle database comprises an instance and data storage. The instance comprises a set of operating-system processes and memory structures that interact with the storage. Typical processes include PMON (the process monitor) and SMON (the system monitor).
Oracle users refer to the server-side memory structure as the SGA (System Global Area). The SGA typically holds cache information like data buffers, SQL commands and user information. In addition to storage, the database consists of online redo logs (which hold transactional history). Processes can in turn archive the online redo logs into archive logs (offline redo logs), which provide the basis (if necessary) for data recovery.
