the developed applications and systems.
These three types of users have different needs. The space and disk
needs of a developer are usually greater than those of an
application user. A developer system may get by with a smaller SGA
because, generally speaking, developers will work with a subset of
all the data expected, while a production database user will need a
larger SGA because the data set is much larger. Administrative users
