Solaris V880 W/32 G ram Oracle 10.1.2 - parameters? [message #132692] Mon, 15 August 2005 13:46 Go to next message

Can someone tell me good parameters for a Solaris V880 with 32 gigs ram? Solaris, I was told, can only share 4 gig. How about:
*.pga_aggregate_target=858993459 # 20 % of sga (4 Gigs)
*.sga_max_size=4294967296 # 4 gigs, wish I could use more...

Clearly I have a poor understanding of how these parameter affect SGA and other memory structures. Our server has 32 gigs, but I think, unless someone tells me differently, we can only use 4 gig for the sga.
Thanks for any help!

Strongly suggest that you read the memory architecture chapter of the concepts guide, as well as the chapter on configuring a new server in the 10g performance tuning guide.

And I have no idea about the max shared memory allocatable on Solaris, but I would be shocked if it were only 4gig, especially when factoring in kernal parameters. Check the solaris platform/installation guide and release notes from oracle's website, as well as the sun documentation on oracle from the sun website. Even windows can use more than 4gig.

And of course we really need more information on what your database is intended to do before we can have an idea on how to suggest actual amounts. But assuming you really need that much horsepower, then consider making your pga target much larger.
