RE: Log Switches in RAC

It is my understanding that the RDBMS does this so as to not allow an instance 
to lag too far behind. You should also check lag_archive_target to see if it's 
set. It's for the same purpose.

Sorry, I mean, other than the alter system commands, Why and when would a log 
switch on one instance of a RAC trigger cause log switches to happen across one 
or more of the other instances?

If you are meaning switch log by manual...


"alter system switch logfile"

This command switches log on that instance.


"alter system archive log current"


This command switches log all instance in RAC



SQL> alter system switch logfile;


System altered.


SQL> alter system archive log current;


System altered.



Good Luck
