Hello,

I am trying to understand how Oracle uses memory structure for tuning purpose.  For that I ran a simple select against V$sga and like to know:

- What is the fixed size?
- What is the variable size?  

 area in the SGA.

How are these two areas in the SGA calculated? And, what is there use?

Thanks.

Sorry, here is the output of the V$SGA from my local XP system. Values represented are default values of Oracle when created/installed.



SQL> select * from V$sga;

NAME                     VALUE
-------------------- ---------
Fixed Size              454644
Variable Size        109051904
Database Buffers      25165824
Redo Buffers            667648

total SGA size  SQL> select sum(bytes) from V$sgastat;

SUM(BYTES)
----------
 135328756
