Re: pga_aggregate_target

<FYI_Verify>
Oracle 9i introduced auto tunning of PGA and can be enabled by setting
the PGA_AGGREGATE_TARGET.
It frees quite a bit of RAM.  
Also Oracle recommends to use this instead of sort_area_size and can be
set online. It can be estimated and set as follow:
1. Set the PGA_AGGREGATE_TARGET to (select value from v$pgastat where
name = 'total PGA allocated';)
2. It can further be tuned using v$pga_advice. Use this table to find
out more appropriate value where the 
ESTD_OVERALLOC_COUNT is 0 and ESTD_PGA_CACHE_HIT_PERCENTAGE is near 100.
