This Doc talks about ARCHIVE_LAG_TARGET parameter and related Issues

ARCHIVE_LAG_TARGET forces a log switch after the specified amount of time elapses.

If set to 0 , it disables the time-based thread advance feature; otherwise, the value represents the number of seconds.
The typical, or recommended value is 1800 (30 minutes). Extremely low values can result in frequent log switches, which could degrade performance; such values can also make the archiver process too busy to archive the continuously generated logs.
