Archive logs filled fast

We are running production system sap_basis version 702 sp13 on oracle version . Our kernel release is 721 patch 600.

I am getting one issue regarding oracle archive log which is filled very fast compare to other days. It got filled up within 6 hour.

We are taking backup of archive log daily evening and clearing it.

We always keep the space of 140-180 GB in archive log directory. this is the first time i faced this issue while working with client.

I have checked the background jobs and there is no much difference on that compare to other days.

Please let me know, how to find the reason of filling archive log so fast?

Thanks in Advance

    All the changes are written in log, so the main reason will be the applications / background jobs those running during that day as you mentioned that it is OK on other days. You may start analyzing this issue using the OSS note below. Also check in alert log file for any errors / warning messages related archive log generation during that particular day.

    584548 - Unusually high number of redo logs

    • Thanks Ganeshan.

      Issue has been resolved after analyzing user data.

      Transferred data for one APO RFC to ECC was very high compare to other days.

      APO user have processed much queues on the day logs got full.
