To determine whether SAP xserver and the SAP DB database instance are operating correctly, the Sun Cluster HA for SAP DB fault monitors probe these resources periodically. The optimum interval between fault monitor probes depends on the time that is required to respond to a fault in a resource. This time depends on how the complexity of the resource affects the time that is required for operations such as restarting the resource.
For example, SAP xserver is a much simpler resource and can be restarted much quicker than SAP DB. Therefore, the optimum interval between fault monitor probes of SAP xserver is shorter than the optimum interval between probes of SAP DB.
