Hi,

RAC is always slower than standard installation.
What is your hardware configuration ?
Do you use 1Gb link between cluster node1 for synchronization ?

Hi,
yes i have interconnect with 1Gb and switch(private ip).
My hardware it's two node with 3 itanium processor for node and 10Gb of memory.
The same database in single instance in PA-RISC processor plataform (4 processor) it's faster.
The disk are the in the same box, in two plataform , HP-VA with san network fddi .

Hi,

I think that you should start with some performance test especially for disk: (glance, sar, iostat) - look at %busy do disks.

Hi,
ok i can do it , but the Cluster it's free of any charge! I test with a simple large select in one only table in one only Oracle tablespace/raw device.
The wait for read it's high, but i don't know a reason. I/o statistics i think it's powerful for many access to all disks.
