Oracle 19c Active Data Guard DML Redirection Feature

19c Active DataGuard DML Redirection

ACTIVE DATAGUARD DML REDIRECTION is a new feature in Oracle 19c which enables the Data Manipulation Language (DML) operations on the Standby Server to be redirected and run on the production (Primary) database.

The updated data will be streamed back to standby to maintain redundancy.

Whenever DML we fire on standby database that operations actually executing on Primary. It might be impacted database performance so we need to avoid too many DML operation execution on standby.


Steps to Understand DML Redirection on Standby Database, Listed below

  1. Once DML executes on an open standby database.
  2. DML automatically redirects to the primary DB.
  3. The DML is executed on the primary DB.
  4. Then updated data is streamed back to the standby DB.
  5. Now data is available for the client.
