I got hired to fill a position of DBA that I wasn't quite ready to fill, and while the training is getting me there, I am running close to a potential issue.
My oracle 11g database's Flash Recovery Area (FRA) is getting very close to being full(2.5% left). It is in ARCHIVELOG mode since we do live backups(at least that is the reason I was told). We have cleared up all unneeded backups through the enterprise manager, but the Archive logs are still taking up over 50% of the allocated FRA space. Is it possible to delete some of the older archive logs to free up space? The server holds logs from several months ago still, and we don't really need backups that far back.
If I can delete them, what would be the best way to do this?
