Unanswered: redo log file size and archive log file size
My database is in Archive log mode and i have given
log_archive_dest = /home/dbArchive
when I do an ls on that directory i found that the Archive Log file sizes are 10484224 bytes. However when I query v$log i found that the redo log file size is 10485760 bytes. If I am not wrong, only after a redo log file is full it switches to the next group and thereby create Archive Log. Then why is there a difference in Archive Log and Redo Log file size. Is there any factor apart from ALTER SYSTEM SWITCH LOG FILE which initiates logfile switch?
Thanks for your reply.
Which block size are you referring to? Is it the block size specified using db_block_size?
Can you elaborate what would have happened?
If you see the difference is just 1536 bytes.
