Clustered configuration first hit the scene nearly 20 years ago when Digital Equipment Corporation DEC introduced the VaxCluster Until now, the topic of Real Application Clusters RAC implementation had never been fully explored For the first time, Murali Vallath dissects RAC mysteries in his book Oracle Real Application Clusters to enlighten and educate readers on the internals of RAC operations, cache fusion, fusion recovery processes and the fast reconfiguration of RAC.This book provides comprehensive coverage of the features, technology and principles of RAC that is part of the Oracle9i release of Oracle s RDBMS product It is divided into three main parts application database design, development and maintenance life cycles Compared to its predecessor OPS, the architecture behind RAC implementation have changed significantly Vallath discusses Oracle9i features in a RAC implementation with respect to usage and design considerations, as well as those parameters that are and are not applicable Areas covered include partitioning, indexes, tablespace management, transaction management, backup and recovery principles Performance tuning with examples, troubleshooting and problem solving scenarios are covered in detail, as well as discussions on the migration process from a single instance database to RAC and migration from an OPS implementation to RAC.Oracle Real Application Clusters takes readers through a logical flow from RAC concepts to operations, covering each facet with a fine tooth comb Vallath s skilled writing style makes each chapter entertaining and informative as only a true RAC connoisseur can provide New and experienced users of RAC, as well as those seeking to expand their knowledge of this dynamic technology, will find this book to be a necessity for both home and office reference libraries Focuses on implementing, testing and tuning features of Real Application Clusters RAC 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 Unravels the internals of RAC architecture...

Oracle Real Application Clusters Reviews
I have had this book for over a month now. This book is out of the ordinary, contains excellent coverage. My visit to amazon.com was to add a few lines of my experience for the benefit of other readers. To my surprise I see quite of few criticisms regarding the details of STATSPACK mentioned in this book. I am not sure how these readers tune their databases. Based on the old ratio technology, using a method of hit or miss lets try this or lets try increasing this parameter approach? In my opinion STATSPACK is a critical piece in today's database tuning, provides a great detail of insight into the performance of the database. I found no negativity to this being included in this book; rather the author has taken a positive approach to explain the wait events related to RAC from the STATSPACK generated statistics.
I found this book very helpful and I love this one. Murali has done an excellent work in providing all the RAC related information starting with the Oracle concepts before moving to the clustering part. The hardware concepts chapter covers in great details the various components that play an important role when configuring RAC clusters, interconnects, storage systems etc,
This book is great, it has an excellent coverage of all features of RAC, starting with a single instance, covers RAC architecture its internals, Cache fusion behavior, internals of various recovery scenarios, TAF, TAF using Java with examples, performance tuning etc. It's an complete book on RAC.
This is an excellent book, covers RAC north south east and west. Internals are covered in great detail. I have not found any other book that has such details.
