Archive log file compression

Postby Raaj A » Fri Jul 12, 2013 10:54 am

Hi Tim,

I have a banking production database which generates 400 archive log ( size 100mb each) files on daily basis. I have setup data gaurd. Is there any feature by which i can compress archive log files in order to save space and reduce network latency due to data gaurd?

please help.

I don't believe there is any automated way to do this.
