Increasing dfmbrc only works up to a point. Tom Kyte has written a bunch about it and has some test scripts and methodology that shows ( varies by os if I remember correctly ) bumping it up only works to a point. ( I think the book is Expert One on One ... can't check my work bookshelf right now ).

If you combine changing dfmbrc and setting oracle 10046 traces you can see that at some point increases are ignored ( maybe better wording is no longer applicable ).

Whether you are using ASM or doing IO directly from a database instance it probably works the same way would be my guess. Received on Sat Jan 26 2008 - 12:38:53 CST
