On Friday, I discovered that my standby database had not applied transactions for 8 days. This is very bad for me because I only keep 7 days worth of archived redo logs. So I had no redo to apply. I used the steps in Note 836986.1 to roll forward my standby with an RMAN incremental backup. The steps in the document worked very well for me. My primary generated about 700GB of redo during this 8 day period, but the RMAN incremental backup was about 285GB in total size. It took me about 24 hours to create the backup since RMAN had to read my entire 14TB database, block by block.

Here are the stats:
