Great post by Adityanath’s Oracle Blog! This helped me tremendously as well! I was getting Archiver Hung Error because my archivelog backups had been failing to delete archivelogs for over 60 days. Thanks!

We got issue in one of the production environment, RMAN archivelog backup was failing with following errors:


kgefec: fatal error 0 
kgepop: no error frame to pop to for error 603

We were using following command in rcv file to backup archivelogs:


BACKUP archivelog all delete input;

After searching on metalink, I found one note with same scenario : RMAN Archivelog backup with DELETE INPUT fails kgepop: no error frame to pop to for error 603 (Doc ID 1921228.1)

According to this note, RMAN errors out when over 5000 archivelogs were being backed up resulting in an excessively large pl/sql to be executed.

Yes in my case, RMAN was processing more than 2TB archives in one go.
