OCI vs Native connection Pool for RAC

Post by slaxman » Fri 15 Jun 2012 20:22

To support multiple nodes in RAC, OCI has builtin loadbalancing. Since direct mode doesn't have this functionality, the native pool will not work for RAC and I need to use OCI pool only. Am I correct?

RAC and OCI Pool are not supported in the Direct mode (only in OCI mode). For more information, please refer to

If you decide to use the OCI mode, using OCI pool will be a better decision than using connection pool.
