Overview

Grid architecture is Oracle’s strategy for high-end computing and RAC is the stepping stone into this arena. This book focuses on current technology including all valid RAC features up through Oracle Database 10g Release 2, with a primary focus on deploying it in a high-end grid environment. The book discusses this technology at length which users will find beneficial when researching, implementing or monitoring a RAC environment. The author covers workshop implementation of services and the distribution of workload across instances, with threshold definitions and the new load balancing algorithms. In addition it includes detailed discussions on ASM that complements the implementation of RAC in Oracle Grid strategy. The book also includes discussions on new Oracle Clusterware, its components and its integration with RAC.

Oracle 10g RAC focuses on RAC-specific topics including ASM, operating system configuration, installation and configuration of RAC and much more. Coverage includes network configuration for high availability, FAN, TAF, ONS, implementation of maximum availability architecture (MAA), EM Grid Control, AWR, ADDM and other performance-related tools. The author includes several scripts for performance tuning and implementation that the reader can use to configure a RAC environment either on a 2, 4, 8, 60 or 99 node configuration.

• Focuses on implementing, testing and tuning features of Real Application Clusters (RAC) database version 10g Release 2
• Provides extensive coverage of usage, day-to-day functions and operations
• Includes tips and techniques such as script samples to illustrate various features of RAC
• A jumpstart into all the key features of 10g R2 RAC

The book does not limit itself from discussing the new Oracle Clusterware, its components and its integration with RAC.

The book focuses on RAC-specific topics including, ASM, operating system configuration, installation and configuration of RAC, RMAN and Oracle's new backup tool, 'Oracle Backup'.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Using Oracle Real Application Clusters, enterprises can run any packaged or custom application unchanged across multiple clustered servers. That doesn’t just improve availability and scalability: It creates the foundation for a true grid computing strategy. Many organizations have invested in Oracle 10g but haven’t taken full advantage of its clustering capabilities yet. That’s where this book comes in, offering definitive guidance on virtually every facet of RAC planning, deployment, administration, and performance tuning.

Murali Vallath focuses heavily on new 10g RAC features: how and why they work, and how to exploit them. So, for instance, there’s extensive coverage of Automated Storage Management, which -- unlike competitive solutions -- can leverage knowledge about datafile usage stored within the Oracle RDBMS. There’s also a solid introduction to Oracle Clusterware, Oracle’s new standardized interface for managing high-availability features on all platforms.

Vallath begins with RAC’s architecture and foreground processes, illuminating components like Global Cache Services and the Global Resource Directory, showing how everything fits together, and presenting basic scenarios that utilize RAC. Next, he presents Oracle Database 10g’s new service and distributed workload management capabilities, walks through an implementation scenario, and introduces Fast Application Notification, which improves performance and availability by proactively notifying applications about changes in the status of the cluster.

You’ll find detailed chapters on availability and load balancing (including TAF and FCF); and on backing up clusters. Next, Vallath turns to performance tuning, presenting a top-down methodology that starts with tuning the application, then the instance, and then the database itself. Last but not least, Oracle technical director Kirk McGowan “guests,” offering a full chapter of best practices for every tier of a RAC configuration. Bill Camarda, from the August 2006 Read Only

    Excellent book for beginner or intermediate oracle DBA. Read it.

    This book will guide you not just through what matters in RAC but also on Linux as well.
    If you're not so familiar with Linux environment, this is the book you gotta read.
    For instance: the most difficult part of implementing RAC is the installation of the clusterware due to several requirements before the installation actually happens. This book will guide you through the basic steps of:
    setting up public network cards, private networks cards, creating VIP addresses, bonding two or more network cards, testing them, verify with cluvfy if there is anything else to be done and just then, actually install clusterware software. These basic steps i just mentioned are linux steps, not oracle for the sake of oracle software. That's why this book is great. You don't have to have the linux bible handy because he tells you step by step what to do.

    The steps related to oracle are very detailed. He uses very rich pictures to better understand the concepts as well.

    I read another book as well 'Oracle Database 10g Real Application Clusters Handbook' by K GOPALAKRISHNAN. I had the impression that this book would be very good specially because it's from Oracle Press. It's a waste of time and money.

    If you really want something simple, easy, with rich concepts and with step by step for beginner or intermediate skills with Oracle RAC stick with Oracle 10g RAC from Murali Vallath.
