Automatic Storage Management

Views: 1. desc v$asm_diskgroup 2. desc v$asm_disk 3. desc v$asm_client 4. desc v$asm_disk_stat Automatic Storage Management (ASM) is a feature in Oracle Database 10g/11g that provides the database administrator with a simple storage management interface that is consistent across all server and storage platforms. The ASM functionality is controlled by an ASM instance. This is not a full database instance, just the memory structures and as such is very small and lightweight. The main components of ASM are disk groups, each of which comprise of several physical disks that are controlled as a single unit. The physical disks are known as ASM disks, while the files that reside on the disks are known as ASM files. The locations and names for the files are controlled by ASM. To create a database that uses storage managed by Automatic Storage Management, we must first start the ASM instance. However, an ASM instance does not require that a database instance is running. We can achieve RAID implementation at Oracle level with the help of ASM (from Oracle 10G), with ASM we can avoid such expenses since ASM is free with Oracle 10g software. RAID: redundant array of inexpensive drive the implementation of RAID will be possible at 3 levels. 1, Hardware level 2, Operating system level 3, Oracle level It will be more expensive implementation of RAID at hardware level and it needs more knowledge of system administration for operating system level RAID implementation. There is no cost for implementation of RAID at Oracle level, and is preferable for database administrators to implement RAID at Oracle level.

If one disk crashes then the show doesn’t stop.
