EM 13c: Enterprise Manager Now Allows To Set Threshold On 'Recovery Area/Recovery Area Used Space (%)' Metric (Doc ID 2751192.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 16, 2023

Applies to:

Enterprise Manager for Oracle Database - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The 'Recovery Area/Recovery Area Free Space (%)' metric is a server generated alert which alerts on the amount of space used in the database's flash recovery area. A 'server generated alert' means that the occurrence of this metric condition is evaluated by the database itself. The EM agent subscribes to the databases Alert Q in order to receive notification about this metric occurrence.

So far it was not allowed to set custom thresholds for this metric either in EM or at the database level. Even it was not allowed to disable this metric or to change the thresholds, which were fixed as warning at 85% full and a critical at 97% full.

But starting from target database version 18c, the 'Recovery Area Used Space (%)' metric thresholds can be customized as required.

The below document helps to understand more about this metric.
