How can I determine if force logging is on, at the database level. (Not asking about finding out if force logging is on for particular tablespaces.)

What rights are needed to perform the check of the above. (I have SELECT_CATALOG_ROLE, but other than that, pretty limited rights.)

I've tried to find out how to query from the Reference and the Administrator's Guide manuals.

Version:

SQL> select * from v$version;

SELECT force_logging FROM v$database;

The SELECT_CATALOG_ROLE gives you permission to run this statement.

Thank you. Apparently my search-fu is weak. –  Shannon Severance Jul 6 '12 at 0:25
