Dear ALL,

I have server HP-UNIX RAC 2 nodes installed oracle database 10g (8gb RAM on each node + 4 cores CPU)

we have an error always appear maximum number of session exceeded and I kill the inactive sessions to solve this issue temporary

I have the following parameters details on each node:

transaction parameter = 731
session parameter = 665
processes parameter = 600

If I want to increase the session parameter to 800 sessions on each session the server HP-UNIX will servive this
number of session how can I calculate the maximum number of sessions the server can handle ?
please help me.

It depends on what the sessions do, of course.
See how your server is currently loaded and applies a rule of three.
You can also investigate on connection pooling or shared servers to share the sessions/processes.

800 sessions means 800 session server processes. If you think that your HP-UX may trouble managing that many processes, discuss it with your SAs. If it does, you could use multithreaded server.
Or upgrade: 11.x has the Database Resdent Connection Pool, 12.x has threaded execution.

And to do the moderator bit:

How much CPU? How much load? How much IOs? Compare with what your server can support.
This is FIRST a question at OS level.

this is the result is this high load or low load on the resources ?
Can I increase the sessions 100 more?

the used and available percentages result I think there is enough resources in the server
but there is any thing else I have to check before increase number of session or this enough?

what is your suggestion?

Do not think, prove, why do you think "there is enough resources in the server"?

Actually I dont have big experience in unix server administration
but from the percentage shown from the top & swapinfo command the usage percentage was not big

if you have experience in this issue inform me please.
