    Have you tried it? V$asm views, as far as I know, are not fixed views, thus the +ASM database needs to be running for you to query these views.

    Gandolf,

    My Question is When my database is down, I am able to query V$Views from +ASM Instance.As our +ASM is not a database, i would like to know , where the information of V$ views of +ASM is kept.

    thanks

    I'll second that!!!

    I thought he was talking about connecting to +ASM using SQL Plus when the database is in startup nomount mode. It's not a traditional database in the it doesn't have everything that a traditional Oracle database has. But technically it is a database.

    ASM functionality is controlled by an ASM instance and it is not a full database instance, just the memory structures.

    My Doubt here is very clear, ASM information can be queried from diff V$ASM_% views. Whether those information can be queried from ASM Instance or a dependent database ? I dont have a test database here to do some exp

    I think it depends, whether they are queried from the ASM instance, or a dependant database instance.
