You usually don't need core dumps unless you have a problem you need to report into oracle support.

Do you have any kind of unix system administrator? Do you have an oracle support contract? Do you have any oracle dba's? If so then get some help asap.

If you "really do not need" old archive logs yes you can delete them. If you "have to" recover the database from some backup prior to the archive logs you think you do not need ... and you cannot get them back from somewhere ... you are toast.

Any real newbie that is handling any important system to the business that is asking questions like this is over their head. If you have anything important to the business ... please ... get management to bring in some support on some kind of contract or whatever ... until you know what you are doing.

The learning curve for supporting an oracle database in a production environment is pretty steep for better or worse. Received on Fri May 15 2009 - 18:47:41 CDT
