RAC Utilities

OIFCFG (Oracle Interface Configuration):
A typical NIC is uniquely identified with its name, address, subnet mask and type. The type of NIC indicates the purpose for which the network is configured. Moreover, in our RAC we have the following supported interfaces:

Public Network Card : This NIC is used for external communications, such as that with the Oracle NET Services and VIP (Virtual Internet Protocol) addresses 

Private Network Card: Also know as High Speed Interconnects for the Cluster—a private interface used for the cluster interconnect to facilitate the inter-nodal or Cache Fusion (we will briefly cover it below) communication.
