    Archives compression

    891445
      I am on 11.1.0.7, and want to know if I can compress the archives which we store locally.
      ie., for Log_archive_dest_1

      We have Log_archive_dest_2(for standby) for which we have already specified Compression=Enable

          Hello;

          The only information I can find on this is :


          Bug 3464260: ALTER DATABASE ARCHIVELOG COMPRESS ENABLE/DISABLE IS MISSING IN 10G DOCS


          I can't find any official reference to the syntax in 11g. I would say don't use it.

          Syntax I'm referring to :
          ALTER DATABASE ARCHIVELOG COMPRESS ENABLE/DISABLE
          Also I would not compress an an archive since if you need it for recovery, you have to decompress.


          Please consider closing some of your old questions.


          Best Regards
