How to check Clock synchronization between cluster nodes in RAC

We can use below to check the clock/time synchronization between nodes in RAC cluster. The crs alert log will also point out thee synchronization issue between the nodes.


cd $GRID_HOME/bin 
./cluvfy comp clocksync -n all


Verifying Clock Synchronization across the cluster nodes
Oracle Clusterware is installed on all nodes.
CTSS resource check passed
Query of CTSS for time offset passed

CTSS is in Observer state. Switching over to clock synchronization checks using NTP

Starting Clock synchronization checks using Network Time Protocol(NTP)...
NTP configuration file "/etc/ntp.conf" existence check passed
Liveness check passed for "ntpd"
Check for NTP daemon or service alive passed on all nodes
Check of common NTP Time Server passed
Clock time offset check passed

Clock synchronization check using Network Time Protocol(NTP) passed

Oracle Cluster Time Synchronization Services check passed

Verification of Clock Synchronization across the cluster nodes was successful.

Check whether ctss or ntp is running

crsctl check ctss 

CRS-4700: The Cluster Time Synchronization Service is in Observer mode.
Observer means – Time sync between nodes are taken care by NTP

Active means – Time sync between nodes are taken care by CTSS

Query to find out the status of Interface Managers

1 comment
We can use below query to check the status for interface managers.

SELECT x.process_type "Name",
  (SELECT '1' FROM fnd_concurrent_requests cr,
    fnd_concurrent_programs_vl cp,
    fnd_application a WHERE cp.concurrent_program_id = cr.concurrent_program_id
  AND cp.concurrent_program_name                     = x.process_name
  AND cp.application_id                              = a.application_id
  AND a.application_short_name                       = x.process_app_short_name
  AND phase_code                                    != 'C'
  ),'1','Active','Inactive') "Status",
  x.worker_rows "Worker Rows",
  x.timeout_hours "Timeout Hours",
  x.timeout_minutes "Timeout Minutes",
  x.process_hours "Process Interval Hours",
  x.process_minutes "Process Interval Minutes",
  x.process_seconds "Process Interval Seconds"
  (SELECT mipc.process_code ,
    mipc.process_status ,
    mipc.process_interval ,
    mipc.manager_priority ,
    mipc.worker_priority ,
    mipc.worker_rows ,
    mipc.processing_timeout ,
    mipc.process_name ,
    mipc.process_app_short_name ,
    a.meaning process_type ,
    FLOOR(mipc.process_interval    /3600) process_hours ,
    FLOOR((mipc.process_interval   - (FLOOR(mipc.process_interval/3600) * 3600))/60) process_minutes ,
    (mipc.process_interval         - (FLOOR(mipc.process_interval/3600) * 3600) - (FLOOR((mipc.process_interval - (FLOOR(mipc.process_interval/3600) * 3600))/60) * 60)) process_seconds ,
    FLOOR(mipc.processing_timeout  /3600) timeout_hours ,
    FLOOR((mipc.processing_timeout - FLOOR(mipc.processing_timeout/3600) * 3600)/60) timeout_minutes
  FROM mtl_interface_proc_controls mipc,
    mfg_lookups a
  WHERE a.lookup_type = 'PROCESS_TYPE'
  AND a.lookup_code   = mipc.process_code
  ) x
  -- WHERE x.PROCESS_TYPE = 'Cost Manager' -- uncomment this to display only the cost manager

ORA-04023: Object could not be validated or authorized

No comments
While running any queries, or after creating any view,procedures we may start getting ORA-04023 errors.

ORA-04023: Object could not be validated or authorized

We may also see ORA-00001 errors in  alert log file parallely.

If we have RAC database and then we may see ORA-04023 error only on one of the nodes which would be specific to instance or node

This would be due to shared pool corruption.


SQL> alter system flush shared_pool;

or bounce the database or specific instance.

If this does not solve the issue, we need to contact Oracle Support for further details.
