GoldenGate Error OGG-01028 Bytes Read () is Greater Than File Size () (Doc ID 1338139.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 22, 2020

Applies to:

Oracle GoldenGate - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The symptom is the error message:

OGG-01028  Bytes read <nnnnnnnnnnn> is greater than file size <nnnnnnnnn> for ...

The immediate issue is that the thread to the database obtained checkpoint values greater than the archive file value. In this case, all checkpoints for the thread were greater than the log size. The recovery checkpoint was greater than the log size AND greater than the other checkpoints.


This followed recovery for an SCN greater than... error. It was coincident and the root cause may have been the same but neither the SCN error nor its recovery caused this problem.
