Oracle Disk I/O Tuning

Chapter 5:

Automated Storage Management Configuration

To turn on ASM facility, you must create a separate ASM instance before you start your database instances. An ASM instance does not require that a DB instance be running; as might be the case when you are initially configuring the components managed by the ASM instance. But to use Automated Storage Management for managing your Oracle database files, you must have both a database instance and an ASM instance running. Automated Storage Management is integrated into the database server; you do not need to install it as a separate product. The Oracle binaries installed for a normal 10g Oracle are used for the ASM instance. Thus there is no separate Oracle Home for ASM. However, to use ASM files, there must be at least one ASM instance configured and started prior to starting a database instance that uses ASM files.

The Database Configuration Assistant (DBCA) or Server Control Utility (SRVCTL) or Oracle Enterprise Manager (OEM) is used in Oracle Database 10g to configure the Automated Storage Management (ASM) features for conventional and Real Application Clusters (RAC) environments.
