Hi,

#kctune ==>To list a parameter

#kctune ==> To list all parameters

#kctune = ===>To set parameter

Re: how to set kernel parameters while installing oracle

Hi Unixuser,

Which is your OS version?

If it is 11.23 and abpve as lijeesh told you can use kctune.

But if it is below that you need to use kmtune.

Like for detailed check

#kmtune -q nfile
Parameter Current Dyn Planned Module Version
=============================================
nfile 3329 - (16*(NPROC+16+MAXUSERS)/10+32+2*(NPTY+NSTRPTY+NSTRTEL))

For configuring

#kmtune -s maxusers=

you can see the complete procedure here

# cd /stand/build
# /usr/lbin/sysadm/system_prep -s system
# kmtune -s maxswapchunks=value -S system
# mk_kernel -s system
# mv /stand/system /stand/system.prev
# mv /stand/build/system /stand/system
# kmupdate
# shutdown -ry 0

As Sooraj mentioned, the split is on the OS version, not architecture.
