Iíd like to know:
Is there an equation I can use to determine what I should be expecting as a normal archive redo file-size?

I have a case where twice in the last 11 months a user of my application was required to delete their archive files much earlier than they normally do in order to make a complete connection to an Oracle 11 database to complete the startup of the application server.
The logs reference: ORA-00257

Iím not convinced itís not a problem Iíve created programmatically but if it was I would expect to see this issue with much higher frequency since this database is under a steady load 24/7/365.

The database vendor and the settings utilized is not something we attempt to provide much guidance on but Iím concerned the disk space theyíve made available is too little for these files and I would like to go back to the customer and say something to the effect of ďWhile under most circumstances, 5GB is a sufficient amount of disk space for the archives given how often your backup and purge procedures are utilized, in some cases the amount of space needed require the disk space be at least 20GB. You are recommended to increase your disk space accordingly.Ē

So Iím imagining the variables would be:
. Number of redo processors
. Size of data being saved
. Concurrent transactions
. Redo log file destination size
. etc

I believe I saw another post say that the file would grow 1GB/3mins wasnít that unusual.
Is this correct?

Hi kpp, and welcome to the forum!

The redo log size is determined by the size of the online redo logs, and the volume of redo is determined by the volume of DML. Please read:


Good luck!

Hope this helps . . .
