Oracle Real Application Clusters on IBM AIX Best Practices in Memory Tuning and Configuring for System Stability
IBM and Oracle have a long standing history of technical collaboration to enhance Oracle products on IBM Power Systems. This joint commitment to support the Power System platform's performance, scalability and clustering capabilities allows customers to effectively deploy Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC) on a broad range of configurations. To support customers who choose to deploy Oracle RAC on IBM Power Systems servers IBM and Oracle have prepared this recommendation of best practices for managing memory use on AIX systems running Oracle RAC. Implementing these recommendations will provide customers with the best possible availability and performance of the Oracle Database, and reduce the potential for node evictions due to memory over commitment.
