> raw file systems

There is no such thing as a raw filesystem, just a raw volume. A raw volume is a collection of binary codes that can only be read by special programs, in your case, Oracle (implied by the vg_rac name). There are no files, only data elements stored there by Oracle. Your database administrator can show you the contents.

If you really want to see the binary codes, you can use dd and xd, something like this:

dd if=/dev/vg_rac/ora1 | xd -xc | more

Hi Himacs,

You can check nickel output, where you can find as your required.

#cd /opt/contrib/bin

#./nickel

Check nickel output.
