Use Corrective Action ( CA ) to Automate Archivelog Backup When FRA Usage is Over Threshold of Metric Extension ( ME ) in OEM

Take advantage of OEM Corrective Action ( CA ) to automate archive logs backup after FRA usage over threshold.

In Previous posts, we have created following related posts:

  1. Create a Metric Extension (ME) to Monitor FRA Usage on OEM
  2. Create an Incident Rule for Metric Extension ( ME ) to Monitor FRA Used in OEM

Now and then, FRA usage is easily over threshold, DBA needs logon system and manually run an archivelog backup.  It is easily to make database hung if FRA usage is 100%.

Here we use “Corrective Actions” to run a RMAN archivelog backup when the FRA usage is over warning / Critical threshold.
