Re: Question on RAC user-managed recovery


It's just part of the way that RAC works.

You have three nodes that are independent; they re-synchronize their SCNs very frequently - but
in principle could delay re-synchronization for about
3 seconds. So if you happened to have three transactions
take place one the three separate nodes just after a
re-synch, then all three nodes would have to commit
at the same SCN.

Subject: Question on RAC user-managed recovery



Folks, I am running some time-based database instance recovery tests in the lab on a three-node RAC environment. The following command was issued from one RAC instance while the others were down. I am trying to understand the way the change number (change 7286467501233) is being displayed on the first line of each of the first three threads below. Why is this number common here? After that, this number is distinct in each subsequent archived log file. I would appreciate if someone can explain/clarify it for me.

Thank you
Amir
