From Primary, we can see _rollback_segment_count is set to 0 and 11 rollback segmentsRead more about Rollback Segment Count settings in Oracle Database[…]

RAC node not joining cluster – Grid Interprocess Communication (GIPC)

GIPC is daemon used for inter-process communication between the nodes. This also support Redundant Interconnect Usage. GIPC Daemon (gipcd.bin)has an end point ‘gipcha://nodename:xxx’. You can see this in the below log entry. 2019-03-14 23:26:56.429 : GIPCGEN:718243584: gipcRequestSaveInfo: client took long time 2300 ms for consuming request 0x7fbc2407e530 [000000001b23a413] { gipcReceiveRequest : peerName ‘gipcha://stone:nm2_primcluster/ed1f-1959-1be4-9d99’, data 0x7fbc24092df8,Read more about RAC node not joining cluster – Grid Interprocess Communication (GIPC)[…]

Oracle Standby Redo Transport SYNC mode Tracing

Standby database is replica of Primary database synchronized using redo log (archived redo log). Redo log generated in Primary is send to standby depending upon transport settings in primary. It can be send using Log Write or Archiver process. There are 3 Dataguard protection modes. They are Maximum Availability, Maximum Performance and Maximum Protection.

Rolling Upgrade Oracle 11.2.0.2 database to Oracle 12.1.0.2 using Standby with No Downtime

It is possible to use Standby database to upgrade a database with near no downtime. Application may experience a failover/switchover but no real downtime window that really interrupt the continued availability of application. This is using Oracle Logical standby feature as that allows application to connect to the database with read/write capability. This is no-RACRead more about Rolling Upgrade Oracle 11.2.0.2 database to Oracle 12.1.0.2 using Standby with No Downtime[…]
