If archive are filling up:

1) Is the DB/Tablespace in hot mode?

2) Look for sessions using lots of ublk and urec

SELECT s.sid, s.serial#, s.username, s.program,

t.used_ublk, t.used_urec

FROM v$session s, v$transaction t

WHERE s.taddr = t.addr

ORDER BY 5 desc, 6 desc, 1, 2, 3, 4;

Another relatively simple approach could be to keep track of your Tablespace Growth in DB02.

For the Tablespaces that have high growth rates, double click and this will bring back size data for tables/indexes in that tablespace.

You can then click on the History to see the historical growth of the tables/indexes.

Hello Siva Prasad,

You want to know why some times you have high number of redo logs? if yes refer SAP Note 584548!

You can particularly see the point number 4 of this note to identify the changes on the object which resulted redo logs.
