The environment used for the tests documented in this paper consist of the Oracle Database 11g with Real Application Clusters (RAC) software to configure nodes with private network intercommunication in the AIX® operating system environment. Tests were run on a POWER6™ processor-based Power® 570 server. The 10 Gigabit Ethernet cards are an option for the Power 570.This document additionally covers the setup and configuration of AIX EtherChannel for Oracle RAC interconnectivity and the Ethernet switches.
