PFILE Question

Posted on 2013-12-17
Last Modified: 2013-12-18
In the init file I have:


I entered the sga_target and pga_aggregate_target.  It appears Oracle entered the
BB60.__pga_aggregate_target and BB60.__sga_target=6442450944.
Just what are those top two entries?  I did not put them in. Which takes precedence?

You are using AMM (Automatic memory Management) where Oracle can change the size of SGA and PGA. It stores the last value in the spfile so that if instance is restarted, it get back to those values.

This was sort of answered in the first post:  "It stores the last value in the spfile so that if instance is restarted"

The answer is:  Yes.
