LGWR (LoG WRiter) is an Oracle background process created when you start a database instance. The LGWR writes the redo log buffers to the on-line redo log files. If the on-line redo log files are mirrored, all the members of the group will be written out simultaneously.

Check process[edit]

The following Unix/Linux command is used to check if the LGWR process is running:

$ ps -ef | grep lgwr
oracle   31144     1  0 11:10 ?        00:00:00 ora_lgwr_orcl
