Oracle10g Grid Computing with RAC
Chapter 3 - High Performance and Highly Available
Database Clusters

Fabric Fencing

Advantages of this approach:

  • Isolates the SAN access only

  • Permits non-SAN applications to continue to run

  • No extra hardware is required

Exclusion with STOMITH approach

This method uses a network controlled power switch to cut off a server’s power supply when it is no longer deemed to be a reliable member of the cluster. Some of the characteristics of this approach:

  • It is highly disruptive to the problem node.

  • It is universal - it operates on all resource types equally well, and simultaneously.

  • It is very simple in concept and in practice.

  • There are virtually no support problems or version interactions to complicate development, testing and maintenance.

  • Overall system availability is often helped by the reboot.

This method was adopted by Linux clusters in the earlier period of their growth and when the Linux SCSI reserve/release support was immature and not consistently implemented.
