Joe,
 I do not know if it is still valid but here is part of a message from 05/2000 that talked about the 4GB on NT. "With Oracle 8.1.6 on NT there is an option to allow you to use all of the 4 GIG as noted in the 8I Administrators Guide for Windows NT section 10. 4GB RAM Tuning (4GT) for windows NT server, Enterprise Edition. More information can be found at

Number of users. I have a 170G Oracle 8.1.6 database running on WinNT 4.0
with 3xx of RAM just fine, as long as there are no more than 2 users. Jump
up to about 16 users and response time goes down the tube.

So I guess that transactions are the answer. I don't have any benchmarks.
Just my $.02.

A question has been posed to me, when to switch from NT to unix for oracle.

Is it when the NT box starts getting out of memory issues, number of transactions, size of db?

just looking for some ball park answers.

thanks, joe
