Oracle 11g: requirements: What is configured swap memory?
Posted on 2009-07-02
I just tried to install Oracle 11g on Linux (centOS). The documentation says that the minimum requirements is 1G of RAM; I have 2 GB. But, when I try to install, the kernel parameters fails because my net.core.rnem_default is less than the recommended value (4194304).
I am confused as to why the documentations says min of 1G of RAM; but in reality is 4G of swap memory? does this make any sense or am I misinterpreting?
if I change /etc/sysctl.conf
and set net.core.rnem_default to the recommended value, would the system crash because of lack of memory? but I do have enough recommended min memory...
thx so much in advance....
