ORA-16855:transport lag exceeded specific threshold

ORA-16855:transport lag exceeded specific threshold

In one of the DR system, we are getting the following Warning

ORA-16855:transport lag exceeded specific threshold

On Oracle check ORA error: ORA-16855
Description: transport lag has exceeded specified threshold
Cause: The current transport lag exceeded the value specified by the ‘TransportLagThreshold’ database property. It is caused by either poor network performance between the redo source and the standby databases or a network disconnection.
Action: Check the network connection between the redo source and standby databases. If they are connected, check the network performance between the redo source and the standby databases and tune it if necessary.

Check the configuration setting on Standby server which received warning.

DGMGRL>show configuration;
DGMGRL>show configuration verbose;
DGMGRL>show database verbose ;
DGMGRL>show database verbose ;

Transportlagthreshold used value in Seconds. O value means no warning generated when Transport lag exists during data-guard. Oracle recommends setting TransportLagThreshold to at least 15 minutes i.e. 900 Seconds.

On checking the standby server getting 30 second value. I will going to increase it to 300, its depends upon network lag from primary to standby.
You need to increase them

TransportLagThreshold = '30'
TransportDisconnectedThreshold = '30'

--Set the value
DGMGRL>edit database set property TransportLagThreshold =;

--Example to set 300
DGMGRL>edit database STANDBY3 set property TransportLagThreshold =300;

Example to Show Standby DB Verbose command

DGMGRL> show database verbose 'STANDBY3'
