Oracle + Linux64 + ReiserFS = total nightmare?


Hello All,

We have a number of boxes running on Linux64 with filsystem ReiserFS and using Oracle DB. Absolutely standart configuration. And we have a huge amount of issues with data corruption. Like Oracle can occasionaly stops with messgaes - datafile corruption, redologs get corrupted, etc. Or, they just get hunged. Today, when we did a test for XI system failover, one of controlfiles get corrupted.

Storage is fine, our heavy R/3 boxes (number of Oracle DB's more than 4TB each) running on HP900/IA64 on HP-UX use same shared storage and no issues at all.

But Linux boxes are keep us busy all the time! We tried to use -notail option without success. I read everything on OSS and Metalink - nothing I can use. SAP told that current configuration should work fine. No futher reccomendations from them.

Anybody have idea what to do next? If you're use similar configuration, please leave me a note how is it. Our coffe machines going to be broken soon because of owernight consumption! 😊

What we running on:
