HI EXperts ,

I have a database in a manufacturing environment. This database is running on RAC. When i run a database heatlth check on this database i found out that the Redo log size is 264. It states that redo log file should be close to 0 for the value. So i am thinking of clearing the redo log, BUT since they have RAC implemented, is there anything i should be aware of or lookout for.

thanks.

Never clear Redo Logs.
This is done by Oracle according complex rules.
Cleaning the Redo Log you can damage the
instance, especially if it crashes.

But i run a database health check script, i found out that the redo log file size is 1227. does this have any impact on the performance of the database ? as accoring to the health check , it should be close to 0 as possible.

I think you misunderstood some notion.
Possibly this what you are speaking about is a wait event
linked with the Redo Log files.
If your DB is running in archivelog mode you have to increase the number of Archiver background processes.

Go beck to the Healt Check and investigate the case ...
