WARNING: Managed Standby Recovery Started With REAL TIME APPLY (Doc ID 2254108.1)

Last updated on APRIL 03, 2020

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version to [Release 12.1 to 12.2]
Oracle Database Exadata Cloud Machine - Version N/A and later
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure - Database Service - Version N/A and later
Oracle Database Exadata Express Cloud Service - Version N/A and later
Oracle Database Cloud Exadata Service - Version N/A and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The following message is reported in the alert.log of a physical standby database:

WARNING: Managed Standby Recovery started with REAL TIME APPLY
DELAY <n> minutes specified at primary ignored

where the numeric value after the DELAY is the actual delay configured for the related LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST_n on primary.

This message is reported even after managed recovery is restarted with the USING ARCHIVED LOGFILE attribute due to changes in behavior introduced in 12.1 and up.


In 12.1, a physical standby will by default run with Real Time Apply enabled.  The USING CURRENT LOGFILE attributes are depreciated.  To support using a DELAY, managed recovery has to be restarted with USING ARCHIVED LOGFILE instead.
