In Oracle Grid Infrastructure 11g Release 2, Oracle extends the capability of ASM by introducing the ASMCluster Filesystem, or ACFS. In other words, Oracle ASM 11g Release 2 has capability to the manage all data, including Oracle database files, Oracle Clusterware files and non-structured, general-purpose data such as log files and text files. This sounds amazing, however in my last experience with ACFS on 112034 on Linux 64bit, I found pretty nasty bugs which I think worth sharing.
