RE: log_buffer Value setting NOT effective ?

Message-ID: <>


Even though log_buffer is set to 1M, on Database Startup it is automatically getting reset to 14MB (shown below)

Qs 1 - Is there a Patch for this Bug?
Qs 2 - Alternatively, Can _ksmg_granule_size be manually set to a small Value e.g. 1M? Is it safe to do so?

HP-UX 11.31

Cheers & Thanks indeed

P.S. Metalink Note:351857.1 posting:-

This is already explained in bug 4592994.<>

In 10.2 the log buffer is rounded up to use the rest of

the granule. The granule size can be found from the

hidden parameter "_ksmg_granule_size" and in your case

is probably 16Mb. The calculation for the granule size

is a little convoluted but it depends on the

number of datafiles etc..
