Viewing the configuration of a RAC database

[root@node1 ~]# su - oracle
-sh-3.2$ srvctl config database -d RACDB
Database unique name: RACDB
Database name: RACDB
Oracle home: /u01/app/oracle/rdbms/11.2.0
Oracle user: oracle
Spfile: +DATA1/RACDB/spfileRACDB.ora
Domain:
Start options: open
Stop options: immediate
Database role: PRIMARY
Management policy: AUTOMATIC
Server pools: RACSP
Database instances:
Disk Groups: DATA1,FRA,DATA2
Mount point paths:
Services: MY_RAC_SVC
Type: RAC
Database is policy managed
-sh-3.2$

So, we see that :
a) The database name is RACDB
b) It is a Policy Managed database (not Administrator Managed)
c) It is dependent on 3 ASM Disk Groups DATA1, DATA2, FRA
d) There is one service called MY_RAC_SVC configured
e) The database is in the RACSP server pool
f) The database is configured to be Auto-started when Grid Infrastructure starts

Viewing the configuration of a RAC service

-sh-3.2$ srvctl config service -d RACDB -s MY_RAC_SVC
Service name: MY_RAC_SVC
Service is enabled
Server pool: RACSP
Cardinality: UNIFORM
Disconnect: false
Service role: PRIMARY
Management policy: AUTOMATIC
DTP transaction: false
AQ HA notifications: false
Failover type: NONE
Failover method: NONE
TAF failover retries: 0
TAF failover delay: 0
Connection Load Balancing Goal: LONG
Runtime Load Balancing Goal: NONE
TAF policy specification: NONE
Edition:
Service is enabled on nodes:
Service is disabled on nodes:
-sh-3.2$

So, we see that :
a) The service name is MY_RAC_SVC
b) The UNIFORM cardinality means that it is to run on all active nodes in the server pool
c) The server-side connection load balancing goal is LONG (for long running sessions)

Viewing the configuration of Server Pools

-sh-3.2$ srvctl config srvpool
Server pool name: Free
Importance: 0, Min: 0, Max: -1
Candidate server names:
Server pool name: Generic
Importance: 0, Min: 0, Max: -1
Candidate server names:
Server pool name: RACSP
Importance: 0, Min: 0, Max: 2
Candidate server names:
-sh-3.2$

So we see that :
a) The RACSP server pool is the only created (named) server pool
b) This server pool has a max of 2 nodes
