ORA-16038: log cannot be archived ORA-19809: limit exceeded forrecovery files



ARC3: Error 19809 Creating archive log file to ‘+DISKS’

Errors in file /u01/oracle/diag/rdbms/orcl/orcl/trace/orcl_arc1_6598.trc:

ORA-19815: WARNING: db_recovery_file_dest_size of 42687547752 bytes is 100.00% used,

and has 0 remaining bytes available.



This problem normally occurs when our flash recovery area is full , we have two option to solve this problem:

1. Add size to flash_recovery_area if we have free disk space.

SQL> alter system set db_recovery_file_dest_size=5G;


2. Delete some archivelogs to free flash_recovery_area.

RMAN> crosscheck archivelog all;

RMAN> delete expired archivelog all;

RMAN> delete obsolete;
