As you can see from examining the values for different operating systems in Table 1.2, many parameters are similar, but some vary greatly. Operating systems such as NT, W2K (Windows 2000), and AIX have fewer tunable parameters because they do automatic tuning of their internals.

You will need to consult the system administrator or the system specific installation documents to determine how to adjust the parameters on your system. On some, it may be as easy as a change to a configuration file and a reboot; others may require a complete relink and replacement of the kernel executable.

This is an excerpt by Mike Ault’s book “Oracle Administration & Management”.  If you want more current Oracle tips by Mike Ault, check out his new book “Mike Ault’s Oracle Internals Monitoring & Tuning Scripts” or Ault’s Oracle Scripts Download.
