The secondary location isn't an 'overflow' one; it gets written to concurrently with the primary. If you are having space issues, a good option is to run rman archivelog backup periodically to backup the files and move them someplace else. Make sure to 'delete input' or 'delete all input' depending on your need to keep one or both of your archival locations cleaned up.

Ok so i'm trying to setup a process so we have an alternate location to write out archive logs. It appears the log_archive_dest_state_2 with an option of alternate would fit the bill. No matter what I do, the primary destination( on local filesystem on the server), once it fills up, then the archiver just hangs. Am i thinking incorrectly in how this should work?
