Re: The same session run on both instances (RAC), is it normal?

select username, machine,  osuser, to_char(logon_time, 'YYYY-MM-DD HH24:MI')
LG ,last_call_et
from gv$session
where username = 'GDBA_WUQIH'

GDBA_WUQIH    ASIAPACIFIC\SCN7872    wuqih    2007-09-27 17:23    0
GDBA_WUQIH    ASIAPACIFIC\SCN7872    wuqih    2007-09-27 16:40    0
GDBA_WUQIH    ASIAPACIFIC\SCN7872    wuqih    2007-09-27 16:40    0
GDBA_WUQIH    ASIAPACIFIC\SCN7872    wuqih    2007-09-27 17:23    0

From the result, the session connects to two instances at the same time.
it's amazing. Is it correct that a session connect to two nodes?
