  • 2013 © Trivadis Server assignment: explanation  Generic and Free pools have importance 0 by default  Servers cannot be claimed from Generic if Admin-managed databases exist  After moving to PMD make sure that old admin-managed instances are removed from the cluster Datum Ansicht > Kopf und Fusszeile 44
  • 2013 © Trivadis What-IF  CRSCTL: $ crsctl eval modify serverpool ora.crm -attr "MIN_SIZE=4,MAX_SIZE=4" –f […] Resource 'ora.hr.payroll.svc' (1/1) will be in state [OFFLINE] Server 'rac4' will be moved from pools [ora.hr] to pools [ora.crm] Resource 'ora.hr.db' (2/1) will be in state [OFFLINE] Datum Ansicht > Kopf und Fusszeile 45
  • 2013 © Trivadis What-IF  SRVCTL: $ srvctl add serverpool -serverpool bi -min 5 -max 5 - importance 10 –eval Service payroll will be stopped on node rac4 Database hr will be stopped on node rac4 Server rac4 will be moved from pool hr to pool bi Datum Ansicht > Kopf und Fusszeile 46
  • 2013 © Trivadis Policy Sets  For monthly payroll, HR needs more resources Datum Ansicht > Kopf und Fusszeile 47 POLICY NAME=monthly_payroll SERVERPOOL NAME=ora.hr IMPORTANCE=10 MIN_SIZE=3 MAX_SIZE=3 SERVERPOOL NAME=ora.crm IMPORTANCE=5 MIN_SIZE=1 MAX_SIZE=1
  • 2013 © Trivadis Policy Sets  For nightly billing, CRM needs more resources Datum Ansicht > Kopf und Fusszeile 48 POLICY NAME=nightly_billing SERVERPOOL NAME=ora.hr IMPORTANCE=5 MIN_SIZE=1 MAX_SIZE=1 SERVERPOOL NAME=ora.crm IMPORTANCE=5 MIN_SIZE=3 MAX_SIZE=4
  • 2013 © Trivadis Policy Sets  Create the policy set file from running values $ crsctl create policyset -file cluster_policies.txt  Modify the policy set file with an external editor  Reload the policy set file into the cluster $ crsctl modify policyset -file cluster_policies.txt  Activate a policy $ crsctl modify policyset –attr "LAST_ACTIVATED_POLICY=monthly_payroll" Datum Ansicht > Kopf und Fusszeile 49
  • 2013 © Trivadis Policy Sets  “crsctl eval modify policyset” not implemented yet  Cluster managed policy sets are mutually exclusive with QOS policies  No integrated way to switch policy: use CRON instead (or QOS!) Datum Ansicht > Kopf und Fusszeile 50
  • 2013 © Trivadis Child Server Pools  Divide Server pools in sub groups (child pools)  Cannot be created with srvctl, only crsctl  They do not work with policy-managed Databases!  You may try them and see funny errors!  Datum Ansicht > Kopf und Fusszeile 51
  • 2013 © Trivadis Datum Ansicht > Kopf und Fusszeile Databases and services 52
  • 2013 © Trivadis Database behavior: admin managed Datum Ansicht > Kopf und Fusszeile 53  Instances assigned statically: less agility (better control?) RAC3 RAC4RAC1 RAC2 HR3 CRM4CRM2 Pool “Generic” CRM1 WEB3 HR4WEB2HR1
  • 2013 © Trivadis Database behavior: policy managed Datum Ansicht > Kopf und Fusszeile 54  RAC Databases always span the entire Serverpool RAC3 RAC4RAC1 RAC2 CRM_3 CRM_4CRM_2 Pool “Mixed” CRM_1 HR_3 HR_4HR_2HR_1
  • 2013 © Trivadis Database behavior Datum Ansicht > Kopf und Fusszeile 55  RAC One Node can be deployed without problems RAC3 RAC4RAC1 RAC2 RCV_1 WEB_1BI_1 Pool “Mixed” CRM_1 ABU_1 BCK_1OE_1HR_1
  • 2013 © Trivadis Database behavior Datum Ansicht > Kopf und Fusszeile 56  RAC/RAC One node in the same or different pools RAC3 RAC4RAC1 RAC2 RCV_1 WEB_1 Pool “multi_node” ABU_1 BCK_1 CRM_2CRM_1 HR_2HR_1 Pool “one_node”
  • 2013 © Trivadis Database behavior  If you consolidate many databases, use Instance Caging to manage CPU contention (CPU_COUNT)  If DB are concurring also for other resources, implement QOS  QOS needs Policy-management and it’s the Oracle way to manage inter-database resources  For intra-database resources, Resource Mgr is the way  Multitenant consolidation + RM to manage PDB resources Datum Ansicht > Kopf und Fusszeile 57
  • 2013 © Trivadis Services Datum Ansicht > Kopf und Fusszeile 58  SINGLETON: assigned dynamically to a single node  UNIFORM: assigned to every instance in the server pool (not compatible with QOS)  srvctl add service -db CRM -service SALES -cardinality UNIFORM RAC3 RAC4RAC1 RAC2 CRM_3 CRM_4CRM_2 Pool “Mixed” CRM_1 SALES REPORTING FIN_READ
  • 2013 © Trivadis Services  Databases can be configured to span several pools $ srvctl modify database -db hr -serverpool "hr,crm"  But services can run only in ONE database and ONE pool! $ srvctl modify service -service payroll -db hr -serverpool "hr,crm“ PRKO-2003 : Invalid command line option value: hr,crm  Use multiple services in order to reach all instances if the DB spans multiple pools  Multiple services: use Resource Manager! Datum Ansicht > Kopf und Fusszeile 59
  • 2013 © Trivadis Little demo? Datum Ansicht > Kopf und Fusszeile 60 collabn1 collabn2 collabn3 collabn4
  • 2013 © Trivadis Datum Ansicht > Kopf und Fusszeile Practical tips 61
  • 2013 © Trivadis Crsctl output may be misleading!  Instances are volatile with PMD  Instances may be reported OFFLINE by crsctl or EM12c, that’s expected (it doesn’t mean I like it!)  This happens after pool shrink or RAC One relocations  Count the ONLINE instances instead, and expect to be greater or equal than serverpool’s min_size Datum Ansicht > Kopf und Fusszeile 62
  • 2013 © Trivadis Centralize the diagnostic_dest!  With local FS, you may not find the right instance, at the right time, on the right host  Use a CFS, e.g. ACFS if it’s available for your platform  ACFS? Then take care of resource dependencies Datum Ansicht > Kopf und Fusszeile 63
  • 2013 © Trivadis Datum Ansicht > Kopf und Fusszeile Conclusion 64
  • 2013 © Trivadis We love it!!  Server failures do not affect critical services  Very fast instance provisioning  Proven agility and scaling  Easy administration  Requirement for QOS and GDS (as of 12.1.0.1)  Oracle recommends it! Datum Ansicht > Kopf und Fusszeile 65 vistaICO.com
  • 2013 © Trivadis well… not always!  Some combinations of features don’t work  Can’t choose different cardinalities for services or DBs  Stopped instances reported OFFLINE when pools shrink!  EM12c is not always reactive when pools resize  Other features need attention when pools expand (GG, DG) Datum Ansicht > Kopf und Fusszeile 66 vistaICO.com
