ORA-00845: MEMORY_TARGET not supported on this system

ORA-00845: MEMORY_TARGET not supported on this system


[oracle@server02 ~]$ export ORACLE_SID=testdb

ORA-32004: obsolete and/or deprecated parameter(s) specified

ORA-00845: MEMORY_TARGET not supported on this system


*** This Error occurred when I configured MEMORY_TARGET on a Centos 5.2 64BIT Server.


I found one Doc, which states the cause of the error and to solve the Issue.

The main reason for this error is MEMORY_TARGET or MEMORY_MAX_TARGET cannot be greater than the shared memory filesystem (/dev/shm) on the OS.


[root@bisserver02 ~]# df -h

Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on

tmpfs 1.9G 0 1.9G 0% /dev/shm

As per the Document I increased the /dev/shm to 7GB.

[root@server02 ~]# mount -t tmpfs shmfs -o size=7g /dev/shm

[root@server02 ~]# df -h

Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on

tmpfs 7.0G 0 7.0G 0% /dev/shm

shmfs 7.0G 0 7.0G 0% /dev/shm
