Alert being triggered when all after image extents are fixed sized.
ProTop checks every storage area for the existence of a variable length extent. Since each after-image extent is considered a distinct storage area, the hasVar metric, if activated, will generate an alert for every AI extent.
If your database exclusively uses variable length extents, you can disable this alert.
Otherwise, filter out the after image extents from the hasVar alert in the alert configuration file.
- Edit <PROTOP>/etc/alert.XYZ.cfg file
hasVar char <> yes "" "daily" "No variable extent" alertto
hasVar char <> yes "" "daily" "No variable extent" alert tt_area.SAName !begin "After"
There is no need to restart ProTop. The agents will pick up the changes after a few minutes.
