I am installing Oracle applications on Linux and they are taking 6-7 hours. I am using vmware and my guest OS is oracle enterprise Linux version 5 update 2. I have 8 Gigs of ram allocated to the vmware image but I think it is not being utilized at all. I can see only 88kd of swap space being used. What changes do I need to make to linux and oracle database to make the installs run faster? What linux commands can I use to see what memory oracle is using. I used 'top' and it seemed like oracle user never used more then 1 gig. I could see this from the system monitor.
Thanks in advance..
