Utilising ASM with an ACFS volume

Disk_Image As part of a recent data migration project it was decided to test out and an Oracle 'ACFS' disc volume as an alternative to existing Oracle 'OCFS' volumes for external table dumps for the ETL migration processing. The attached paper covers the steps in the 'ACFS' process to set up and also links to some other resources on 'ACFS'.

It is hoped to show how easy this technology is to implement as well as making further use of existing Oracle ASM disk already used for Oracle RAC clusters greater than version 11.1.  Care needs to be taken with prerequisites and kernel versions before deciding to implement, please see metalink note: ACFS Supported On OS Platforms.
