Questions and Answers
 Assuming this is for Oracle RAC only, since that's pretty clear; but, is this 10g only and is this HA only? Does it apply for 11g?
 Is it necessary when using Oracle HA without failover?
 Should it be disabled if having LOAD_BALANCE?
 Does it apply for a single-schema setup with high-availability?
