Product Description

Amazon Review

Oracle's Net8 technologies are what make Oracle databases more than just repositories of values. They facilitate communication between Oracle servers and their clients, as well as among servers for purposes of synchronisation, replication, and load balancing. Oracle Net8 Configuration and Troubleshooting documents the Net8 software in full, explaining to system implementers and administrators what talks to what, and how. The emphasis is on design constraints, for example, the way many operating systems limit the number of simultaneous connections to a single process and so require multiple dispatcher processes. Diagnosis and repair of problems are also explored, and quite a lot of information about console utilities is included.

Syntax statements and annotated lists of parameters complement the text in this book. You'll probably learn the most about the subject that interests you by locating a page reference in the index, then reading straight through a couple of sections on either side of the reference--the pages are rich in information and casual detail. Of course, a book isn't an O'Reilly system administration guide without configuration file documentation, and Oracle Net8 Configuration and Troubleshooting upholds the tradition with option-by-option coverage of the lines that must and can appear in the four key .ORA files: SQLNET, TNSNAMES, LISTENER, and NAMES. --David Wall

Topics covered:

  • Overview of Net8
  • The setup process
  • Multi-Threaded Server (MTS)
  • Integration with Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP)
  • Oracle Names
  • Clustering for load balancing and redundancy

From the Publisher

Describes everything DBAs need to know to install configure, tune, and troubleshoot Net8, Oracle's networking technology. It covers the Oracle Internet Directory (OID), Oracle Names; the Multi-Threaded Server (MTS); and the Oracle Connection Manager, as well as the Oracle networking utilities (lsnctl, namesctl, cmctl, tnsping, Net8 Assistant, Net8 Easy Config, and Net8 Configuration Assistant). In addition, it provides networking troubleshooting techniques, commonly encountered Net8 configuration problems, and complete syntax for all networking files and commands.

HASH(0x928cec24) out of 5 stars Oracle Net8 A Good Book to be on desk. 26 July 2001
By dba_ramanarao - Published on
Format: Paperback
Oreilly knows how to make a difference when they get a book out on a topic.
This book really stands out on certain day to day practical topics. For Eg: It has been specially metioned that the trace file name while configuring through Net8 is to be given as "Tracefilename" on Windows platform. Net 8 will add the extension of ".trc" while creating the file, where as on Unix it's "filename.trc". Else it would result in "filename.trc.trc" on windows. I have tested this and it really is the same way. Such simple things are also were not left out.
Net 8 is one topic on which little number of books are found. You can just count the number of books written on this topic. And Oreilly has done a good job by bringing out a book long waited for.
If one were to get a good understading about Oracle's Networking technologies One must read this book.
Sure I'm going to buy some more from Oreilly.

HASH(0x928cecd8) out of 5 stars Best and only book out there for Oracle Networking 20 Dec. 2002
By Sudheer Marisetti - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book is a one-stop book about everything you need to know about Oracle Networking. For a very long time there was not a decent book out there on Oracle networking and it is a very wide topic. The authors have done a great job giving intricate details. This book is the most marked up book of all Oracle books I have. My only complaint is about LDAP. The authors could have covered deeper in this subject.

HASH(0x928d11b0) out of 5 stars Great book for Nat8 management 22 Feb. 2001
By Donald Burleson - Published on
Format: Paperback
I really found this text to be quite useful for managing a SQL*Net and Net8 environment. All of the details are explained in a clear fashion and the text is very comprehensive and complete. Overall, this is a suberb treatment of a complex subject.
HASH(0x928d157c) out of 5 stars Wonderful Presentation 8 July 2001
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
Oracle Net8 is very thorough in my opinion. Not only is the book set up in a concise and easy to understand manner, it also presents examples, walk-throughs and illustrations. I am by no means a seasoned DBA, however, the explanations are worded so thateven the beginner is able to understand.
HASH(0x928d15a0) out of 5 stars Revised, I love this book 30 April 2001
By Ahbaid Gaffoor - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book remains one of the few (if not the only) works out there on as important a topic as SQL Net. Though we are now on 11g the book still remains relevant as the book's concepts still apply.
