Goldengate Network Troubleshooting

Fri, 2017-01-20 08:50

We encounter the following error:

GGS ERROR 150  Oracle GoldenGate Capture for Oracle, pump.prm:  TCP/IP error 9 (Bad file descriptor).

Note: server collectors at target will not be started and ports not opened until pump at source is started.
Using nc to test port.

$ nc -v -z -w 3 target.local 7960; echo $?
nc: connect to target.local port 7960 (tcp) failed: Connection refused
1

$ nc -v -z -w 3 target.local 7970; echo $?
Connection to target.local 7970 port [tcp/*] succeeded!
0

Not preferred and does not mean it’s wrong – Entry starting at 16.

DYNAMICPORTLIST 7960-7980 (20)

In hindsight, I should have started a few more pump extracts
to determine if Entry values cycle back to 0 and
if port assignment will start at 7960 or will fail.

This is what happens when dozen of pump extracts are stopped and started in groups while manager is RUNNING.

Houston, we have a problem.
Look at Error column.
Anything other than 0 is not good.
Look at the date assigned.
These look to be orphaned processes and manager still thinks port is assigned.

This is what I like.
Notice the timestamp for Assigned are all the same.
This is because pump from source was started using wildcard, i.e. start p*
Oracle support does not recommend this and YMMV.

HugePages on Oracle Linux 64-bit (Doc ID 361468.1)
Modified:Mar 7, 2016

Step 6: Stop all the database instances and reboot the server
(Although settings could have been done dynamically they would not be effective to the extent we require before a reboot.
The best practice is to do a persistent system configuration and perform a reboot to complete the configuration as presented through the steps above)

ALERT: Disable Transparent HugePages on SLES11, RHEL6, RHEL7, OL6, OL7, and UEK2 and above (Doc ID 1557478.1)

Check the RPM log file to review the system configuration changes. For example:

Cloning 12c SE2 Oracle Home for Windows 2012 R2

Sun, 2016-12-18 00:13

Process is pretty much similar to *nix environment with a few exceptions.

It was harder that it should be since I wanted to perform task using CLI vs GUI.

This does not cover zip and unzip of OH and I cannot believe how junky Winzip has become since I have typically been using 7-Zip.

RMAN MAXSETSIZE, MAXPIECESIZE, FILESPERSET Unveil

Thu, 2016-12-15 20:14

First, any backup implementation should have recovery point and time objective.

Next, there’s no right or wrong, just what fits the requirements.

FILESPERSET controls maximum number of files for each backupset.
MAXPIECESIZE controls maximum size of backuppiece.
MAXSETSIZE controls maximum size of backupset.

Typically, if MAXSETSIZE is set, it should be equal to or greater than maximum size of all data files.
In general, it is not recommended to set MAXSETSIZE.

Backupset can contains 1 or more backuppiece; hence, why set a limitation on maxsetsize when it may be better to set limitation for maxpiecsize?

Justification for filesperset=1 is faster recovery and filesperset>1 is to reduce management of backup, e.g. crosscheck.

Consideration, backup versus restore frequencies.

Here’s an analogy, you are at bank withdrawing $2000 and the teller ask, how do you want the bill?
Would you like 20 $100 bills or multiple small bills 1,5,10,20 or combination of there of?

Same concept applies to backupset and filesperset.

Note: FILESPERSET and MAXOPENFILES affect multiplexing, number of buffers, size of each buffer and is not the scope of this blog post.

From the DEMO, there is only 1 backuppiece for each backupset and depending on maxsetsize, the number of backupsets created is different.

MAX DATAFILE SIZE IS 513M

Oracle Data Guard Broker and Static Service Registration (Doc ID 1387859.1)

Wed, 2016-11-30 07:37

This is a quick and dirty note to self about Doc ID 1387859.1 which may be incorrect for Single Instance Database with Oracle Restart.

Please share if you have configuration for Single Instance Database with Oracle Restart using DataGuard Broker and listener registered from Grid – TIA.

Oracle Data Guard Broker and Static Service Registration (Doc ID 1387859.1)	

+++ DO NOT BELIEVE THIS TO BE CORRECT - FAILED FOR TEST CASE.

Single Instance Database with Oracle Restart

Here there is no cluster, but clusterware has been installed to enable the Oracle Restart feature. 

The local listener LISTENER has its LISTENER.ORA located in the /network/admin directory of the Oracle Grid Infrastructure home. 

In this case the static service registration is:
SID_LIST_LISTENER=
  (SID_LIST=
    (SID_DESC=
     (GLOBAL_DBNAME=db_unique_name_DGMGRL.db_domain)
     (ORACLE_HOME=oracle_home)
     (SID_NAME=sid_name)
    )
  )

As with Single Instance databases, the SID_NAME value sid_name will default to the db_unique_name.

Online Redo Log Switching from RMAN Backup

Sat, 2016-11-26 11:28

I was troubleshooting backup from standby databases and encountered an oddity which I wanted to verify.

Backing Up Archived Redo Logs with RMAN

Before beginning the backup, RMAN switches out of the current redo log group, and archives all online redo logs that have not yet been archived, up to and including the redo log group that was current when BACKUP command with any of the following clauses:
PLUS ARCHIVELOG
ARCHIVELOG ALL
ARCHIVELOG FROM …

 

 


VirtualBox OEL 7.3 Minimal Install for 12c

Wed, 2016-11-23 21:47

Finally, I was able to configure OEL 7.3 Minimal Install.

OEL 7.3 was a challenge since NAT and Host Only Networking from VirtualBox was not working.

I broke down and ended up using Bridged Adapter.

Next, blogs out there were using Server with GUI installation which is a really bloated option.

Even tried CentOS 7.0 Gnome and did not like having to install UEK or rebuild RPM.

Did it work?

VirtualBox OEL 7.3 Minimal Install for 12c

Silent Install CRS_SWONLY 12c using OEL 7.3 Minimal Install

Will you try it and let me know?

Happy Thanksgivings!

Just thought I would compare the old versus new.

Using opatch report feature

Sat, 2016-11-05 13:51

I have been patching a lot lately and started to wonder if this is a simpler way to check for patch conflict.

Reviewing the log from running opatch auto shows opatch auto does perform check; hence, why do we need to check this manually?

What about creating scripts to do this? Done this as well and will required modifications when requirements are changed.

If the post name did not give it away or if you want more details, then take a look at opatch auto report

Here is the script I have to check for conflict if you are still interested.

Instance Name changes during RAC One Node Failover/Switchover

Thu, 2016-11-03 07:07

Just a quick note to self.

INSTANCE / NODE CRASH (FAILOVER):

     When the node goes down due to abnormal termination (  kill -9 or due to unknown reasons) Grid Infrastructure performs the following:

  •  First cluster tries to restart the instance in same node.
  •  If it is unsuccessful then it will start the instance in other node.
  •  If the instance name is orcl_1, when it failover to node 2 it will be still orcl_1.

INSTANCE RELOCATE MANUALLY(SWITCHOVER):

    When Manually switchover is performed for relocating orcl_1 from Node1 to Node 2 (Instance Relocation) Grid Infrastructure performs the following:

  • It will first create pfile( init.ora) automatically in node 2.
  • In node 2 it will use the new pfile and start instance with a new name, i.e. orcl_2, this is due to both instances are required to be up and running for active sessions on the original node to complete or time out.
  • Post switchover, it uses new instance name i.e. orcl_2

Oracle 12c CRS-4995: The command ‘Modify resource’ is invalid in crsctl.

Wed, 2016-11-02 21:23

So there I was playing with 12c Oracle restart and ran into
CRS-4995: The command ‘Modify resource’ is invalid in crsctl. Use srvctl for this command.

For 12c, this expected as crsctl shouldn’t be used to modify ora.* resource.

Couldn’t figure out how to modify resource using svrctl.

However, I did learn about -unsupported for crsctl.

Why database not startup automatic 11gR2 Grid Infrastructure?

AUTO_START
- always: 
Restarts the resource when the server restarts regardless of the state of the resource when the server stopped.

- restore: 
Restores the resource to the same state that it was in when the server stopped. 
Oracle Clusterware attempts to restart the resource if the value of TARGET was ONLINE before the server stopped.

Oracle Clusterware never restarts the resource regardless of the state of the resource when the server stopped.

Identify SQL_ID from Failed Per-SQL Time Limit SQL_TUNING_TASK

First, many thanks to Ivica Arsov from Pythian for all his help is solving the issue.

The objective is to find the 2 SQLs failed due to time limit.

Advance apologies for lazy post as I am just going to only provide references and results from triage.
