maxdsize and ulimit

We have an Alpha server ES47 running Tru64 Unix V5.1B on which we trying to upgrade from Oracle 9i to Oracle 10g R2.

However upgrading to Oracle 10g R2 has presented us with link errors.

How do find what maxdsize is set to?

Also can I increase the hard limit with ulimit?
See below output of hard limits and soft limits?

$ ulimit -Ha
time(seconds) unlimited
file(blocks) unlimited
data(kbytes) 327680
stack(kbytes) 32768
memory(kbytes) 8130952
coredump(blocks) unlimited
nofiles(descriptors) 4096
vmemory(kbytes) 4194304

$ ulimit -Sa
time(seconds) unlimited
file(blocks) unlimited
data(kbytes) 327680
stack(kbytes) 8192
memory(kbytes) 8130952
coredump(blocks) 0
nofiles(descriptors) 4096
vmemory(kbytes) 4194304

Re: maxdsize and ulimit


Verify with: sysconfig -q proc
Also check ipc and vm

Be sure to read 'best practices'.
Google: +tru64 +oracle +"best practice".
Notably:



http://download.oracle.com/docs/pdf/B10811_05.pdf

and ... duh ... the Oracle installation guide and release notes.
Accordign to
http://www.oracle.com/technology/documentation/database10g.html

That would be:

Re: maxdsize and ulimit

The web links helped me to indentify in the Tru64 Unix documentation that there is no such maxdsize parameter.
