We have an alert set up in DPA for Oracle Archiver Errors. Last week, the archiver got stuck because the disk had run out of space. However, we did not receive the alert until after we found and corrected the problem ( about 5 hours had elapsed ). Once the problem was fixed, I received the email alert. I'm relatively new to DPA. Is this normal? BTW, the same applied to the instance availability alert. We received the alert after we corrected the problem. Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks.
Was the issue on the repository Oracle database? Was monitoring running? Were there any blackouts?
Did you get any emails during that time?
The short answer is no, that is not the normal behavior.
