Total elapsed recovery time from disk-based database corruption can be shortened by reprocessing the audit trail off-line and thereby avoiding excessive resource utilization penalties. Using a bit map, the audit trail is compacted by eliminating irrelevant or superseded records. The compacted trail is then partitioned, and the partitions are processed in parallel.
