That is not the output from a "SHOW SGA" command. For example, on my Oracle XE system:

OK, that shows your SGA is 480MB. How much RAM is on the server?

Far too small.

While 1GB is the minimum required for an Oracle installation, you may often need much more. As others have said, your Large Pool is too small and you need to increase its size. This may require you to obtain more memory for your host.

Cheers,
Brian

XE edition is restricted to 1GB, which (I think?) has to inclkude both SGA and PGA. So take it slowly. You know that sga_target=480m works, but not well. So try a bit bigger, perhaps 600m.

Hi All,

Even we have come across the situation may times.
However, it is not same edition /version.

My issue is I come across this issue daily at a particular time.
Upon my further diagnosis I found that this occurs during the Daily Backup Window.
Finally we understand that it requires high large pool during the Daily Backup using RMAN tool.

FYI this error can be diagnoised from the following Oracle Support Tool link:

Document 1088239.1 NOTE:1088239.1Title: Master Note for Diagnosing ORA-4031

Is there any way we configure such that this can be addressed.

Regards,
Naveen

What "such" refers to?

I mean if we can set large pool to dynamically increase during backup window.

If this is a question, the answer is yes, see doc.
And:
SQL> select ISSYS_MODIFIABLE from v$parameter where NAME='large_pool_size';
ISSYS_MOD
---------
IMMEDIATE
