what is GAB port y for

Solution

GAB port y is introduced in Veritas Storage Foundation for Oracle RAC and Cluster File System version 6 or later.

 

CVM uses port y for kernel-to-kernel communication required while shipping I/O from node(s) that might have lost local access to the storage to the nodes in the cluster.

port y gets opened on the node once the node becomes a CVM cluster member (vxconfigd daemon enters in cluster mode).

port y closes once the node leaves CVM.

 

Example gabconfig -a output:
