First off you have a setup problem if your archive log are no longer on your primary. If RMAN removed them you should configure it to APPLIED on STANDBY.

I answered your question because I have dealt with some large gaps. However I have not done what you are trying. My friend CKPT has this excellent document :Have cheked the link earlier, it doesn't refer to my situation. My file locations/mount points are different.

Was thinking of a backup/restore. DB size is around 500G.
But how do we clear the archive logs in standby automatically? Your setting will delete from primary when the logs are applied on standby.
