ORA-16198: Received timed out error from KSR & LAD:2 network reconnect

I have setup Data Guard and log synchronization happening without any issue but recently I found below errors, which are happening rarely in alert.log file

GWR (PID:13557): ORA-16198: Received timed out error from KSR
LGWR (PID:13557): Attempting LAD:2 network reconnect (16198)
LGWR (PID:13557): LAD:2 n
etwork reconnect abandoned
Errors in file /oracle/diag/rdbms/orcl/ORCL/trace/orcl_lgwr_13557.trc:
ORA-16198: Timeout incurred on internal channel during remote archival
LGWR (PID:13557): Error 16198 for LNO:2 to 'orcl_stdby'
LGWR (PID:13557): Failed to archive LNO:2 T-1.S-5003, error=16198
LGWR (PID:13557): Error 16198 disconnecting from LAD:2 standby host 'orcl_stdby'

Redo Transport Services failed with ORA-16198 error from primary database standby database using LGWR SYNC mode.

Data Guard Broker log shows below error messages…

Data Guard Broker Status Summary:
  Type                        Name                             Severity  Status
  Configuration               orcl_dg_fsfconf                   Warning  ORA-16608: one or more members have warnings

  Physical Standby Database   orcl_stdby                        Warning  ORA-16853: apply lag has exceeded specified threshold

When I very configuration everything looks good and no issues.

If this is happening frequently then it is critical and must take action immediately. In my case it is happening rarely which lean towards time out setting. I see that my current DB has net_timeout as 30.
After research, I have increased the net_timeout to 60 and issue has been resolved.

In case if you are not using Data Guard broker then you can run below command from SQL*Plus
SQL> alter system set log_archive_dest_2 service="orcl_stdby", SYNC AFFIRM delay=0 optional compression=disable max_failure=0 reopen=300 db_unique_name="orcl_stdby" net_timeout=30, valid_for=(online_logfile,all_roles)

In case if you are using DGMGRL command-line interface, then you can run below command
