Oracle Parallel Server How To...


OPS Tuning - Reduce dynamic resource allocation


Review the alert logs on each instance. By default there are to be found in ‘{ORACLE_HOME}\RDBMS80\TRACE\<SID>ALRT.LOG’.

If since Oracle was last started the alert log contains the message:

DYNAMIC RESOURCES ALLOCATED

Then increase the initialisation parameter LM_RESS. If the alert log contains the message:

DYNAMIC LOCKS ALLOCATED

Then increase the initialisation parameter LM_LOCKS.


These notes have been tested with Oracle Parallel Server 8.0.5 running under NT 4.

This page represents one page of many pages of notes I made whilst working with Oracle 7 through to 10i. I now no longer work with Oracle databases, but hope that these notes will continue to be of benefit to others.
