  15. Question 10. What Is Asm?

    Answer :

    ASM is Automatic storage management which was introduces in Oracle 10g . It provides storage solutions. It is a very powerful tool for managing multi-terabyte database.

    The storage components of Oracle ASM are:

    • ASM Disks
    • ASM Disk groups
    • ASM Allocation units
    • ASM Extents
    • ASM Files
    • ASM File Extent Map

    ASM can add a disk from the volume or remove it, ASM can perform the load balancing inside the storage. Basically , ASM provides the volume manager layer which is essential for every software. It also acts as a file system.

  17. Question 11. Explain The Benefits Of Asm?

    Answer :

    There are several benefits of ASM . The most important aspects of ASM are:

    • It stripes files rather than logical volumes
    • It can perform Online disk reconfiguration and dynamic rebalancing
    • It has adjustable rebalancing speed
    • It Provides redundancy on a file basis
    • Besides, ASM  is  Custer-aware and it can be automatically installed .

  23. Question 14. What Is An Oracle Instance?

    Answer :

    Oracle instance is a system global area (SGA) and the Oracle background processes constitute an Oracle database instance. Every time a database is started, a system global area is allocated and Oracle background processes are started. The SGA is deallocated when the instance shuts down. After starting an instance, Oracle associates the instance with the specified database. This is called mounting the database. The database is then ready to be opened, which makes it accessible to authorized users.

  24. Question 15. What Is Oracle Package?

    Answer :

    Oracle package is a schema object that groups logically related PL/SQL types, items, and subprograms. Packages offer several advantages: modularity, easier application design, information hiding, added functionality, and better performance

  25. COBOL Interview Questions

  26. Question 16. Explain The General Concepts Of Pl/sql?

    Answer :

    PL/SQL is Oracle’s procedural extension to SQL. With PL/SQL, we can manipulate data with SQL statements, and control program flow with procedural constructs such as IF-THEN and LOOP. we can also declare constants and variables, define procedures and functions, use collections and object types, and trap run-time errors. Applications written using any of the Oracle programmatic interfaces can call PL/SQL stored procedures and send blocks of PL/SQL code to the server for execution. Because it runs inside the database, PL/SQL code is very efficient for data-intensive operations, and minimizes network traffic in client/server applications.

  28. Question 17. What Is Rdf?

    Answer :

    A set of rules (a sort of language) for creating descriptions of information, especially information available on the World Wide Web. RDF could be used to describe a collection of books, or artists, or a collection of web pages as in the RSS data format which uses RDF to create machine-readable summaries of web sites. 

    RDF is also used in XPFE applications to define the relationships between different collections of elements, for example RDF could be used to define the relationship between the data in a database and the way that data is displayed to a user

  30. Question 18. What Do The Oracle Logical Structures Comprised Of?

    Answer :

    Logical structures of an Oracle database include tablespaces, schema objects, data blocks, extents, and segments. Because the physical and logical structures are separate, the physical storage of data can be managed without affecting the access to logical storage structures.

  36. Question 21. What Is Partitioning?

    Answer :

    Partitioning is a method of splitting large tables and indexes into smaller, more manageable pieces.

  37. Question 22. What Is The Dcl & Ddl Language ?

    Answer :

    DCL is Data Control Language statements (GRANT, COMMIT) DDL (Data D DDL language definition Language) statements are used to define the database structure or schema (CREATE, ALTER, TRUNCATE). 

  38. Question 23. What Is Explane Plan?

    Answer :

    The EXPLAIN PLAN statement displays execution plans chosen by the Oracle optimizer for SELECT, UPDATE, INSERT, and DELETE statements. A statement’s execution plan is the sequence of operations Oracle performs to run the statement. The row source tree is the core of the execution plan.

    It shows the following information:

    • An ordering of the tables referenced by the statement
    • An access method for each table mentioned in the statement
    • A join method for tables affected by join operations in the statement
    • Data operations like filter, sort, or aggregation In addition to the row source tree

    the plan table contains information about the following:

    • Optimization, such as the cost and cardinality of each operation
    • Partitioning, such as the set of accessed partitions
    • Parallel execution

    such as the distribution method of join inputs The EXPLAIN PLAN results let us determine whether the optimizer selects a particular execution plan, such as, nested loops join.
