RE: Memory issue with Oracle 10g database on Sun Server T5140 with Solaris 10

Keith,

You are right each thread is counted as one cpu.
We have one T2000 server with Solaris 10 and the cpu_count is 24 and I didn't 
have problem in creating 10.2.0.4 database with SGA_TARGET as 256M on this 
server.

Where as on T5140 (Solaris 10) with cpu_count 128 I am not able to create a 
10.2.0.4 database  with SGA_TARGET as 256M. Either I have to set the SGA_TARGET 
to 900MB without changing the cpu_count parameter or change cpu_count to 4 and 
use SGA_TARGET as 256M.

I can't afford to have 900MB as SGA_TARGET for each of my databases (70+) on 
the same server. So my next option is to limit the cpu_count to 4. I am trying 
to find out from the list if this is the only option (i.e. cpu_count=4) to 
overcome my problem on T5140 server or there is any other recommendation.

Thanks,
Ashoke

Check the value for the cpu_count initialization parameter. I ran into a 
similar problem because some memory parameters are based on a mimum per CPU.
On the Sun Cool Threads servers, Oracle counts each thread as a CPU.

In our case, the cpu_count was 64 for a little T2000 server.
