RE: Why extra standby redo log group?

Martin, John, Fuad,
Thank you. When you have heavy transaction for a period of time, if you have n log groups on primary and n+1 SRL groups on standby, do you see all n+1 SRL groups used? That is, on the standby, do you see all, not just n, rows in v$standby_log under status column, alternately showing 'ACTIVE'?
I know if I manually switch logfile on primary, only n SRL groups will be 'ACTIVE' (the extra stays unused). I'll test by building a small data guard where primary is on a node with fast storage and standby with slow storage and create lots of redo.

Totally agree. Our configuration has 8 primary nodes and (of course) only 1 standby node. For those that don't run DataGuard 10g, you can only have 1 active standby node. Normal log switches happen about 3 per hour. During peak times, our log switchs pick up speed and this configuration keeps up quite nicely.

that the standby can keep up with the primary. It is only a recommendation though and not mandatory
