I have a vendor supplied Oracle 10G system on Windows 2003 server with 32G of RAM. This system is only using 1.25G for the SGA and 400M for the PGA. I'm in management now (snooping around) but I strongly suspect we can do better than that. What would be the optimal settings for these? I have been doing some reading in the manual and it looks like I (somebody) just needs to set the SGA_MAX_SIZE, SGA_TARGET, and PGA aggregate target appropriately. Am I on the right track? I'm a bit ticked that all that expensive memory is sitting their inactive. I can't change it until I talk to the vendors but I want my ducks lined up.
