Oracle Workgroup server Init.ora settings

Oracle Workgroup server Init.ora settings

Oracle Workgroup server Init.ora settings

(OP)
Sir,

I am new to Oracle 7 Workgroup Server. I am using version 7.3.2.0.0 on a Novell Netware 5.x. I am using a Netinfinity server with on RAID 3 (15 GB) with duel processor. The server got 512M SDRAM and 100 MBPS Enet Card.

I have just created my INITSID.ORA. with the following settings.


DB_NAME=SID
Db_files=40
Control_files= path

Compatible=7.3.2.0.0
Db_file_multiblock_read_count=32
Db_block_buffers=4800
Db_block_size=8192
Shared_pool_size=201326592
Log_buffers=31457280
Processes=200
Dml_locks=500
Sequence_cache_entries=100
Sequence_cache_hash_buckets=89
Remote_login_passwordfile=shared
Os_authent_prefix=””
]checkpoint_process=true
log_checkpoint_timeout=0
log_checkpoint_interval=10000

Note: the OS Block size is 64k. I am unable to set the DB_BLOCK_SIZE to 64K (131072). It give the error ora-00374  and it is allowing us to set it to .5K to 8K. Is there any option to change the setting to 64 K. Is there any problem if we create the Oracle Block Size less then the OS Block Size. As per Oracle Manual. Oracle Block size should be multiples or OS Block Size. Pls guide. Awaiting your reply.


Also I would like you comment on my INIT parameter settings. Do you wan me to change any thing to this existing settings. Pls help.

RE: Oracle Workgroup server Init.ora settings

I've never come across a block size of 64K before.  Are you sure you don't mean the stripe size which is commonly this value?

Anyway, there is this 8K limit on the block size in oracle.  Make sure your Db_file_multiblock_read_count is 8 or a multiple thereof (which it is).
