Hi Jeremy,  

_ksxp_ping_enable = false  

Haven't tried statistics_level=basic, it may disable the cluster ping as well as there's "Global Cache Statistics" enabled at level TYPICAL and higher in V$STATISTICS_LEVEL view...

Subject: disable 11g PING bg process?

There's a new background process is 11g called PING; in v$bgprocess it has the description "interconnect latency measurement". I'm setting up a sandbox RAC system in vmware on a very CPU-starved box and noticed this process high on my "top" output... just wondering, does anyone know how to disable it? STATISTICS_LEVEL? I'd imagine there's some hidden param that can disable this and nothing else... anyone know what it might be?
