Interview Questions

1. Mention a suitable environment for Exadata?

Exadata was designed for the purpose of warehouse environment. Later it was improvised for use in the OLTP databases as well.

2. What are the benefits of Exadata?

  • The Exadata cluster enables consistent performance while allowing for increased throughput. 

  • List out key abilities and features of exadata database machine and exadata storage server.

  • Implement exadata storage server security.

3.What is the reason behind Exadata’s higher throughput?

Exadata ships less amount of data through the pipes between the storage and the database nodes and other nodes in the RAC cluster. Also it’s capability to run parallel processes across all the nodes in the cluster is useful to gain higher level of throughput.

4.List out the different Exadata configurations?

The Exadata Appliance configuration formats are Full Rack, Half Rack, Quarter Rack or 1/8th rack.

5. Explain full rack configuration?

The Full Rack X2-2 has 6 CPU’s per node with Intel Xeon 5670 processors and a total of 8 Database Server nodes. These servers have 96GB of memory on each node. A total of 14 Storage server cells communicate with the storage and push the requested data from the storage to the compute nodes.

6. Explain Half rack?

The Half Rack has exactly half the capacity. It has 6 CPU’s per node with core Intel Xeon 5670 processors and a total of 4 Database Server nodes. It has 96GB of memory per database server node with a total of 7 Storage server cells.

7. Mention the key Hardware components?

  • DB Server

  • Storage Server Cells

  • High Speed Infiniband Switch

  • Cisco Switch

What are the Key Software Features?

  • Smart Scan,

  • Smart Flash Cache

  • Storage Index

  • Exadata Hybrid Columnar Compression (EHCC)

  • IORM (I/O Resource Manager)

8. Explain Cell ?

 A cell or Exadata Storage server cell is a mixed combo of Disk Drives put together to store user data. Each Cell Disk relates to a LUN (Logical Unit) which has been formatted by the Exadata Storage Server Software. Each cell has 12 disk drives mapped to it.

9. Explain Grid  disks?

Grid Disks is present on top of Cell Disks and are presented to Oracle ASM as ASM disks. Space is allotted in chunks from the outer tracks of the Cell disk and moves inwards. A particular user can have multiple Grid Disks per Cell disk.

10. Define IORM?

IORM stands for I/O Resource Manager. It is used to manage the I/O demand depending on the configuration, with the amount of available resources. It makes sure that none of the I/O cells become oversubscribed with the I/O requests. This is accomplished by managing the incoming requests at a consumer group level.

11. Define hybrid columnar compression?

Hybrid Columnar compression, also known as HCC, is a feature of Exadata which is used to compress data at column level for a table.

The different types of HCC compression include:

  • Query Low

  • Query High

  • Archive High

  • Archive Low

12. Define Flash cache?

Four 96G PCIe flash memory cards is available on each Exadata Storage Server cell which provide fast access to the data stored on it. A total flash storage of 384GB per cell is available on the Exadata appliance.
