What is the Dbvisit Standby Archive Management Module (AMM) and how is it scheduled?

When you configure the Dbvisit Standby Archive Management Module, it is automatically run as part of Dbvisit Standby. The function of the Dbvisit Standby Archive Management Module is to manage the space taken up by the archives log files on both primary and standby servers. It makes sure there is enough space in the archive log directory (on both primary and standby) so that Dbvisit Standby can send and receive the archive log files. The Archive Management Module will start alerting if the archive log directory space runs out, and can delete old archive log files to clean up space automatically to ensure continued operation.

The AMM is controlled by a set of parameters specified in the Dbvisit Standby Database Configuration (DDC) file. This is like an init.ora file but for Dbvisit Standby. The DDC file will be in the Dbvisit Standby install directory and have the format dbv_<database>.env. Where <database> is the name of your database. The DDC file is created by running dbvisit_setup.
