Re: oracle process in RAC

What version of HP-UX?

first off you probably want to compare kernel parameters (and maybe OS patch levels) between the hosts.

then I'd look at the output of "ulimit -a" for the oracle user on both systems and the outout of "chatr $ORACLE_HOME/bin/oracle" on both systems.

Hi Duncan,

Thanx for replying.

HPUX version is 11.23 itanium.

I compare chatr output and both are the same.

Diff kmtune returns follows:
< ninode 165888 8*nproc+2048
> ninode 35648 35648

any ideas.
