    - A log switch is the point at which the database stops writing to one redo log file and begins writing to another.

    - Normally, a log switch occurs when the current redo log file is completely filled and writing must continue to the next redo log file.

    - However, you can configure log switches to occur at regular intervals, regardless of whether the current redo log file is completely filled.

    - You can also force log switches manually.
