I have not been able to find authoritative documentation explaining the relationship between the components:

Env Solaris 10

swap 16 GB
Ph memory 192 GB
DISM available
trying to set sga_max_size 130GB
pga_aggregate_target 5GB
db_cache_size 120GB
shared_pool 1.5 gb
granule size 16MB

project.max-shm-memory == 136 GB

I would great if some one could help understand the relationship and how it works.. specifically how the granules use the swap space with using oradism.
