In this post I want to share with you the information about the Bug 6373164 present in Oracle Database 11.1. This bug was fixed in release


I configured Archivelog Mode in my database and set the flash recovery area like the default location to store achivelog files. I configured the next parameters in order to set the flash recovery area:


Other parameters related to Archivelog Mode aren’t configured in my linux box, for example:

  • LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST is not set
  • LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST_n is not set

In the next screen I show you my actual configuration:

When the database starts to generate archivelog files, these was send to flash recovery area location but additionally to $ORACLE_HOME/dbs causing higher disk space utilization in my server, like I show you in the next screen:

How to solve the problem

In order to solve this problem you should change the configuration of LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST_1 parameter with the next command:

  • alter system set LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST_1='LOCATION=USE_DB_RECOVERY_FILE_DEST' scope=both;
