Since the missing DML is DELETE, and DELETE can never be a NOLOGGING operation, that can't be the problem.

Sorry, I'm a little late on this, but do any of the tables have "NOLOGGING" set? This will cause DML to be unavailable within the archive logs.

Yes. This occurred Sunday and the archived log files have not been moved since then.

Have you loaded all the logs from the time period in question into logminer? A log switch could occur in middle of a transaction especially if it is large?

My database is in archive log mode. I was correcting chained/migrated rows and unknown to me there were constraints on a few of the tables set up as 'Cascade Delete' (cots package). I backed up the tables I was working with but not the other tables. I know I can do a point-in-time-recovery, but my question is why aren't the deleted transactions in the archive logs? They are there for the tables I deleted 300 records or less, but one of the tables had 4600 records deleted and I do not see the records in the archive log file. Can someone tell me the reason? Is there a 'max transaction' limitation? It doesn't really make sense because for the backup on the main table (create bu table as select ...) there are records listed in the log which are in the 10,000 range. Oh, I am using LogMiner to extract this information from the logs.
