Real Time Log Apply on Standby Database

 
              Configure Real Time Log Apply on Standby



By default, log apply services wait for the full archived redo log file to arrive on the standby database before applying it to the standby database. If the real-time apply feature is enabled, log apply services can apply redo data as it is received from the Primary DB, without waiting for the current standby redo log file to be archived. We can use the ALTER DATABASE statement to enable the real-time apply feature, as below:

  • For physical standby databases, issue the ALTER DATABASE RECOVER MANAGED STANDBY DATABASE USING CURRENT LOGFILE statement.

  • For logical standby databases, issue the ALTER DATABASE START LOGICAL STANDBY APPLY IMMEDIATE statement.

NOTE : Standby redo log files are required to use real-time apply.


Lets Test it:
