 Thanks a lot Mike! Is there a view to see redolog file location and its size? The only way I know is to alter database backup controlfile to trace ; and do ls -l to see the redolog size. Thanks,

SQL> select name,value from v$sysstat
  2 where name in ('redo size', 'physical reads', 'db block gets')   3 /

NAME                                        VALUE
-------------------- ----------------------------
db block gets                          92,422,816
