RAC uses the interconnect for cache fusion (UDP) and inter-process communication (TCP). Cache Fusion is the remote memory mapping of Oracle buffers, shared between the caches of participating nodes in the cluster. The volume and traffic patterns of this type of data, shared between nodes can vary greatly depending on the applications.
Unix and Linux
cluster interconnect IPC version:Oracle UDP/IP (generic)
cluster interconnect IPC version:Oracle 9i Winsock2 TCP/IP IPC
in 10gR1 x$ tables x$ksxpia and x$skgxpia provide the same information.
>srvctl config nodeapps -a
The value of the private interconnect for an instance can be identified using
- The views V$CLUSTER_INTERCONNECTS and V$CONFIGURED_INTERCONNECTS
V$CLUSTER_INTERCONNECTS displays one or more interconnects that are being used for cluster communication.
V$CONFIGURED_INTERCONNECTS displays all the interconnects that Oracle is aware of. This view aims to answer the question on where Oracle found the information about a specific interconnect.
These views are not available in Oracle 10g 10.1.
- The alert.log
- CLUSTER_INTERCONNECTS parameter is set
- Value read from Cluster Registry
olsnodes -n -p can be used to identify the private node name.
You may also check the private node name in the ocrdump output.
ocssd.log has a line with clssnmClusterListener
