    Dataguard Confusions

      Hi all,



      I have configured a DG physical standby database.

      Since I am confident that I have a standby running, I stopped running RMAN backup anymore. Is this a good practice, to rely only on standby?

      My question is since archive logs are generated on both primary and standby, How do I automate deleted the old ones to avoid archivelog full error?

      Is the scheduled delete script on the OS side, the only way to do it? On the Oracle side you can automate deletion my running RMAN backup and delete obsolete.

      But I am not doing backup anymore since I already have a standby database.
