This document describes some advantages the Linux specific ASM library provided by Oracle (herein "ASMLib") brings to the administration of a Linux system running Oracle. Linux often presents the challenge of disk name persistence. Change the storage configuration and a disk that appeared as /dev/sdg yesterday can appear as /dev/sdh after a reboot today. How can these changes be isolated so that they do not affect ASM?
