And of course the file system being full wouldn't prevent re-writing the contents of the existing on line logs (not to be considered a recommendation to share .../diag/... and online logs, just acknowledging the possibility).

If arch is shared with /diag/, then that would get the archiver stuck. (again, not a recommendation). It might also mean that news that the archiver is stuck might not get printed. But if you were to share arch and diag, diag getting full should tip you off...

yes, Oracle wouldn't hang up because logs cannot be written. (this is not true fro online redo logfiles, obviously.
