    Databases availabity with single database firewall




      We are planning to add Oracle Audit Vault and Firewall (AVDF) to our production and non-production architecture.


      We are not considering the resilient paired option. Thus, we will have 2 servers for AV and DFW on PROD and same in non-PROD.


      Having said that, what happens if the DFW crashes or fails for any reason in this architecture?

      Is it really a single point of failure in this case for all DBs?

      Will the connections still pass though bypassing the DFW to the oracle DBs or that will be impacted?

      Can we bypass the DFW at anytime for maintenance...etc?


      Appreciate your input guys on this.
