Re: standby db - ora16166 LGWR timed out on Network Server 1 due to buffer full condition

yes, the standby is pingable and the RFS process and listener are running at the standby.

OS - solaris 8

the only entry in sqlnet.ora on both the primary & standby is
NAMES.DIRECTORY_PATH= (TNSNAMES,HOSTNAME) v$database on primary shows primary,archivelog,read write, maximum performance

v$database on standby shows physical standby, archivelog, mounted, maximum performance

When I switched log file, the logfile got applied at the standby site almost instantaneously. I created a couple of objects on the primary and did verify that they got created on the standby.

I've been getting this error when there were no activities on the database and yet when I tested loading a table yesterday, no error message.

Appreciate any insights.

thanks.

steve
