Rich, Thanks - Brain didn't catch up with last post there. John, I recall Tanel Poder making some comments about"private threads" having space reserved in the log file - do you have a very large value for the 'transactions'
parameter: which would require a lot of private threads,which possibly might pre-empt a lot of space in the logs then not use it. (10.2, 64Bit - private threads can take
128Kb each, and threads = ceil(transactions / 10) Regards Jonathan Lewis http://jonathanlewis.wordpress.com Author: Cost Based Oracle: Fundamentals http://www.jlcomp.demon.co.uk/cbo_book/ind_book.html The Co-operative Oracle Users' FAQ http://www.jlcomp.demon.co.uk/faq/ind_faq.html----- Original Message ----- From: "Rich Jesse" <rjoralist@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

Hey Jonathon, I think he's saying the logs switch when they grow to only 2-to-6 Megabytes -- not every 2-to-6 minutes. In other words, "why aren't the logs filling before switching?" Rich20M in 2 to 6 minutes isn't really very much - I assume the puzzle is why have things changed.
