Kernel Parameters for Oracle 9.2.0 (64bit) on HPUX 11i (11.11)

Hi,

Does anyone know where I can find the recommended kernel parameters for Oracle 9.2.0 (64bit) on HPUX 11i (11.11)?

The following are recommended for HP-UX 11:

shmmax=1073741824 or 0X40000000
shmmni=100
shmseg=10
semmns=1000
semmni=100

Are these also true for 11.11?

Thanks

Giovanni

Hi

You can get only at:
http://metalink.oracle.com
It has a detailed report on this. But it is commercial.
Thanks

Thanks, but can you be more specific? I've got the existing information from metalink, but have only been able to find information relating to HPUX 11 not HPUX 11i

Regards

From metalink.oracle.com

Patches may be superseded, check the itrc.hp.com patch database.

Also, Do upgrade to 9.2.0.4

That patch fixes many issues.

If converting from 32 bit to 64 bit, see the doc I attach.

Re: Kernel Parameters for Oracle 9.2.0 (64bit) on HPUX 11i (11.11)

The metalink mentions 64 bit without regards to 11.00 or 11.11, which I interpret as saying the OS does not matter, this is strictly 64 bit tuning.

Re: Kernel Parameters for Oracle 9.2.0 (64bit) on HPUX 11i (11.11)

Hi,

On the subject of kernel parameters, we have a 9i db on hp-ux 11i k580 which is having
a performance problem. The db is a Data warehouse, does anyone know what the recommended
kernel parameters would be for a data warehouse db?

Thanks in advance!
