It suggests to increase sizes of your redo log files and/or add some more groups and observe how it goes.

The value of ARCHIVE_LAG_TARGET is 0
Unfortunately the message "Thread X cannot allocate new log, sequence XXXX" is sometimes followed by "Checkpoint not complete". So I cannot ignore it easily. Yesterday there was a short but noticeable database hang at the same time when this happened.

Hello, gurus I have a strange problem. I am auditing a system with 2 node Oracle RAC on Solaris. I found in the alert log the following ugly message: Thread Õ cannot allocate new log, sequence ÕÕÕÕ It happens may times. I started to dig inside the problem. I found that the system is setup with 2 redo logs per thread, each of them is 512 MB. I do not think this is wise, but this is not the problem. I noticed in v$archived_log that the size of archived logs (BLOCKS * BLOCK_SIZE) is somewhere between 1 and 3 MB (!), far less than 512 MB. Log switch is happening every 1-5 minutes. Am I missing something? It is Friday afternoon here, and everything seems to me so strange that I started to think I am missing something very major. I am using the following query to get the size of the files generated for some period:select l.THREAD#, l.SEQUENCE#, l.FIRST_TIME, l.NEXT_TIME, l.BLOCKS * l.BLOCK_SIZE / 1024 / 1024 from v$archived_log l
where round(next_time, 'HH24') = to_date('03.10.2008 10:00', 'DD.MM.YYYY HH24:MI')
Also I was hoping to catch who is making all this log switches using AFTER DDL ON DATABASE trigger, but the trigger does not fire for alter system switch logfile. Maybe this statement is not DDL. Can somebody see what am I missing?
