Metalink note 219344.1 mentions there is a bug 2722195
"JUST TWO OF AVAILABLE STANDBY REDO LOGS ARE EVER USED IN A DATAGUARD
ENVIRONMENT"
It has the status "Closed, Not a Bug" . :-)

Kamus,
Oracle documents that one needs at least the # of redo log groups on the
primary + 1 on the standby, when standby redologs are used. I never saw
a logswitch happen to another standby redologfile than the one
previously used, so your observation is quite normal, though somewhat
unexpected regarding the documented requirements. DG always seems to
reuse the same logfile.  I guess it has to do with the speed of the ARCH
on the standby. I need to investigate this further if I get a chance on
a testsystem, before I can get more conclusive on this.

Because normally DG-configurations have real HA requirements (if not,
why was DG implemented), I tend to stay on the safe side and follow the
Oracle docs. It's a little bit CYA, I admit, so be it.

Best regards,

Carel-Jan Engel
