Redo I/O Is Higher On Active Data Guard Physical Standby Than Primary

(Doc ID 2249431.1)

Last updated on APRIL 19, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 11.1.0.6 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

The physical standby becomes un-synchronized with the primary and 'apply lag' may be found to grow via v$dataguard_stats and/or v$standby_event_histogram views.

When database performance metrics are captured for the physical standby it may appear that 'db file parallel read' waits or related datafile read I/O waits appear to spike heavily.

The redo being applied at the time is related to Automatic Optimizer Statistics against three very large partitioned tables.

Changes

 Initialization parameter DB_LOST_WRITE_PROTECT has been set on both primary and physical standby databases.
