How to increase the CPU cores allowed for Parallel processing

[Quoted] We have a Linux server with 48 CPUs running Oracle 12EE, but we have a licensed agreement only to use 8 cores in parallel processing.

Does anyone know where this limit is set within the database? Is it a parameter or is it kept in a configuration file of some sort? We'd like to do temporary testing with more cores with the idea of increasing our licensed limit if testing proves worth it, but we don't know where to make the parameter/config change. We are told though that it is a setting and it can be modified.

Does anyone know how to change this? Received on Fri Sep 01 2017 - 03:44:05 CEST
