Last updated on JULY 18, 2023

Applies to:

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


In an Oracle GoldenGate (OGG) environment with Integrated extract and incorrectly set OS time zone:

a) I-extract created or altered to BEGIN NOW:     ADD EXTRACT <extract_name>, INTEGRATED TRANLOG, BEGIN NOW
will abend if looking for archive log files that are older than the extract registration.  An example error:  ORA-00308: cannot open archived log '+ARCHLOG/ORCTL_1_18359_846435713.arc'

b) lag for I-extract can be misreported as too large a value, even when there is no true lag
