There are a number of parameters that can be used to dynamically remaster an object

Check out Oracle RAC Interview Questions and Answers that help you grab high-paying jobs.

_gc_affinity_time specifies interval minutes for re-mastering
_gc_affinity_limit defines the number of times instance access the resource before remastering, setting to 0 disables remastering
