At a Streams capture site that is also the primary site for a Data Guard standby database, Streams capture latency is steadily increasing, and Streams capture moves very slowly.  Recently an archive_log_dest_n parameter was added to this capture site where the 'n' in log_archive_dest_n was higher than the 'n' being used by logminer for Streams capture.

A check of the DBA_REGISTERED_ARCHIVED_LOG view shows that the new logs are now being registered in the new log_archive_dest_n location that was just specified.  This location is remote so it takes a very long time to access these logs.


A new log_archive_dest_n parameter was specified to a remote location.  For example, if Streams capture was using log_archive_dest_1 to access the logs, and then log_archive_dest_2 is specified, logs start registering in that location instead and that is where Streams capture looks for them.
