I have edited the SGA_MAX_SIZE to 3156187512 for a oracle9i DB thru OEM.
However after applying the changes  the SGA_MAX_SIZE is found to be 3172964752.
Any clues that why I cannot set it to 3156187512 ?

Thx in advance!!!

What is your operating system?  There is big trickery involved to set SGA above 2G on most 32bit systems

you need to edit /etc/system and set SHMMAX to desired value (1.5*1024*1024+100*2048) 3G of 2K pages + 100 pages just in case

gheist,
sorry but I do not understand why this is so.
The MAX SGA is bring some factor of total Memory or it should be equal to
some combination of other parameters?

Solaris allocates SHM handles so you can use 2G of shared memory, this is enough for most of common uses. It should always allow some space for system and daemons and logins to run, or swapping will be inevitable.
