About Book

Oracle's Net8 technologies are what make Oracle databases more than just repositories of values. They facilitate communication between Oracle servers and their clients, as well as among servers for purposes of synchronization, replication, and load balancing. Oracle Net8 Configuration and Troubleshooting documents the Net8 software in full, explaining to system implementers and administrators what talks to what, and how. The emphasis is on design constraints--for example, the way many operating systems limit the number of simultaneous connections to a single process and so require multiple dispatcher processes. Diagnosis and repair of problems are also explored, and quite a lot of information about console utilities is included.

Syntax statements and annotated lists of parameters complement the text in this book. You'll probably learn the most about the subject that interests you by locating a page reference in the index, then reading straight through a couple of sections on either side of the reference--the pages are rich in information and casual detail. Of course, a book isn't an O'Reilly system administration guide without configuration file documentation, and Oracle Net8 Configuration and Troubleshooting upholds the tradition with option-by-option coverage of the lines that must and can appear in the four key .ORA files: SQLNET, TNSNAMES, LISTENER, and NAMES. --David Wall

Topics covered:

  • Overview of Net8
  • The setup process
  • Multi-Threaded Server (MTS)
  • Integration with Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP)
  • Oracle Names
  • Clustering for load balancing and redundancy

Book Description
Net8 is the fundamental Oracle technology that allows Oracle services and clients to communicate with each other over a network. Net8 is most often used to connect client software to Oracle database servers. It may also be used to connect database servers to one another, allowing communication between distributed databases. This practical guide provides the information that readers, especially database administrators, need to know in order to install configure, tune, and troubleshoot Net8. It discusses how Oracle's network architecture, products, and name resolution methods work, and it provides the details of client and server configuration using a variety of Oracle protocols and networking products, including:
  • The Oracle Internet Directory (OID), Oracle's implementation of the standard Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP). This directory can be used to maintain a central repository of net service names that can be referenced by all clients.
  • Oracle Names, a networking component used mainly in earlier versions of Oracle, that allows net service names to be defined centrally.
  • Multi-Threaded Server (MTS), an environment in which the client connections share access to a pool of shared server processes.
  • Oracle Connection Manager, a Net8 component that acts much like a router and provides protocol conversion, connection concentration, and access control.
The book also describes the utilities Oracle provides to help manage a Net8 environment; these include the Listener Control Utility (lsnrctl), the Oracle Names Control Utility (namesctl), the Oracle Connection Manager Control Utility (cmctl), tnsping, and Net8 Assistant. In addition, it provides a variety of networking troubleshooting techniques and commonly encountered Net8 configuration problems, and provides complete syntax for all networking files and commands.
