Hi,

RAC is the newer and enhanced version of Oracle's Parallel Server.

A ping is a request to write a data block from cache to disk so that another instance can read that block. RAC's cache fusion technology eliminates pinging by transferring blocks across the interconnect.

For more information, see the RAC FAQ at http://www.orafaq.net/faqrac.htm

Best regards.

Frank
