Why don't you read up on synchronous replication?

Oracle tries to write something ( say it is a log file block or anything ) ... storage device A receives the write ... it transmits it to storage device B ... storage device B acknowledges back to A that it has the write ... before giving IO ack to oracle.

It is done block by block and has nothing to do with Oracle transactions.

Sounds like you are just making up stuff. Received on Sat Oct 04 2008 - 14:02:21 CDT
