10. Have you ever set TAF. If yes ,expalin how does fail over happens11. how can cache fusion improve or degreade performance.12. Have you ever faced any performance issue due RAC13. what is the background process for cache fusion. Does it have anything to do with logwriter process.14. will you increase parallelism if you have RAC, to gain inter instance parallelism.what are the considerations to decide.15. what is single point of failure in RAC16. how do you backup voting disk and how do you recover.17. what information is stored in OCR, what if you loose it. How can you recover it.18. how many voting disks and OCRs you can have. Why voting disks can be in oddnumbers only.19. A query running fast on one node is very slow on other node. All the nodes have sameconfigurations. What could be the reasons.20. Does RMAN behave differently in RAC21. Can archive logs be placed on ASM disk.what about on RAW.22. have you ever used OCFS, can you place OCR and voting disks on OCFS.
We can not assume in same way we don't believe in rule of thumbs!consider query:select c1, sum(c2)from t1group by c1this query returns result set in sorted order of c1 but it changes in 10g R2 as 10g used HASH GROUP BYOperation to implement grouping,rather than using SORT GROUP BY as it would do in earlier versions. SoHere if sorting is desired there must be explicit order by query.Similary There can be some join queries in which users might be getting sorted result set , but they can notrely on it always, may be if execution plan changes it can not sort the result set, so if sorting is required,developers need explicit specify order by clause in query.I remember a case in which a junior developer wrote a query to dump the table data to asciii csv file, Herewas obviously clear columns data in csv need in same order as in table. But as Developer came to know aboutview user_tab_columns I told him, he used query on this view to estimate the maximum record length oftable in csv file(rather than manully summing the all columns widths of table) what he could have donealternate way is set large linesize along with trimspool on, but he wamted to cut short work of typing select
