Last updated on AUGUST 24, 2011
Applies to:Oracle Exadata Storage Server Software - Version: 188.8.131.52.0
Information in this document applies to any platform.
On closer inspection via AWR reports or other methods you may also find that the archive process is hung.
This issue is intermittent
i.e. stays for 5 minutes & once the archiving is done , it comes back to normal state
There had bee some previous Flash Disk failures but unable to make a determination that this had any relevance or not. As the disks we replaced, we think not.
