- There is no direct way of changing the size of the
members of a redo log
group. Instead, create new redo log groups with
different sizes and remove
the old groups.
svrmgrl> alter database add logfile group 5
('patch redo logfile') size 100M;
Group number should be a number that does not
currently exist and
size would be the desired size of the new redo log.
Remember, you need
a minimum of 2 logs for the database to run. If you
currently have x
number of redo logs that need to be resized, perform
the 'alter database add
logfile' x number of times in order to create the
number of log groups that
svrmgrl> alter system switch logfile;
Perform this statement until you have switched to the
the first logfile
with the desired size.
svrmgrl> alter database drop logfile group 1;
This should be performed on all old logfile groups
that are not the
desired size. Note that you can only drop a redo log
member/group only if it is
not an active group. If you want to drop a memeber of
an active group, first
force a log switch to occur.
Note also that when an online redo log member is
dropped from the database,
the operating system file is not deleted from disk.
Rather, the control
files of the associated database are updated to drop
the member from the database
structure. After dropping an online redo log file,
make sure that the drop
completed successfully, and then use the appropriate
operating system command
to delete online redo log file.
note: you can drop only inactive log group.please make
sure before drop from status column of v$log.
