-- PURPOSE:
--  
--  This script is to be used to assist in the collection of information to help
--  troubleshoot Data Guard issues involving a Physical or Active Standby.

-- The following select will give us the generic information about how this standby is setup.
-- The DATABASE_ROLE should be STANDBY as that is what this script is intended to be run on.
-- PLATFORM_ID should match the PLATFORM_ID of the primary or conform to the supported options in
-- Note: 413484.1 Data Guard Support for Heterogeneous Primary and Physical Standbys in Same Data Guard Configuration.
-- FLASHBACK can be YES (recommended) or NO.
-- If PROTECTION_LEVEL is different from PROTECTION_MODE then for some reason the mode listed in PROTECTION_MODE experienced a need to downgrade.
-- Once the error condition has been corrected the PROTECTION_LEVEL should match the PROTECTION_MODE after the next log switch.

-- FORCE_LOGGING is not mandatory but is recommended.
-- REMOTE_ARCHIVE should be ENABLE.
-- SUPPLEMENTAL_LOG_DATA_PK and SUPPLEMENTAL_LOG_DATA_UI must be enabled if this standby is associated with a primary that has a logical standby.
-- During normal operations it is acceptable for SWITCHOVER_STATUS to be NOT ALLOWED.
-- DATAGUARD_BROKER can be ENABLED (recommended) or DISABLED.
