Information in this document applies to any platform.


Customers would like to know the impact on all the billing batch jobs (Batch utilities like pin_bill_accts, multithreaded applications (MTAs) etc) when database server/service is completely unavailable for few minutes due to disaster.

Situation is:

Billing is in Progress.
Database has become unavailable for sometime.
Stand-alone database server without RAC implementation.
TNS level Load balancer.

Question 1:
Are all the Out Of the Box (OOTB) billing utilities resilient to this situation?

Question 2:
Will all batch utilities wait for the database to come up and retry from same point where it was stopped?
