Full Version: Removing arch logs applied to standby database
Oracle DBA Forums > Oracle > Oracle Forum

Need to remove arch logs to free up space on a standby database. These are the logs that have been applied to the standby database. Can I just remove these (once I find out if they have been applied) using a regular linux command (rm) or do I have to use rman on the standby database? These arch logs have been sent over from the primary server to this standby server. Searching the internet, it seems to be going both ways.

Hi,

Most shops automate the management of redo logs with scripts:

If you want [pre-written Streams scripts you can download them:

No! It's a best practice to use RMAN from the master to re-synchronize the standby database.

The Data Guard book has details:
