I can not quite follow, there is a url to oracle documentation, and they said,
To improve the performance of the software on Linux systems, you must increase the following shell limits for the oracle user </quote>
The oracle documentation don't goes in detail, how it may improve the performance, however, it seems to be obvious - as long as you don't hit the limits, you can happy live with defaults, howerver, if your system is a busy one, you may need a little bit more resources but you won't get additional, if you don't set the limits as documented. The purpose of limits.conf in linux is comparable with resource_limit in oracle - here is the link to documentation: Putting the in the /etc/pam.d/login has nothing to do with oracle installation, it should be in every proper configured linux system, which utilize pam ( and this is the standard if i am not wrong).
