Chapter 9. Administering Oracle and RAC on Linux > Configuring the Linux Kernel

9.1. Configuring the Linux Kernel

As mentioned earlier in this book, and in the previous chapters on configuring and installing the Oracle RAC system on Linux, it is necessary to configure the Linux kernel in order for Oracle to allocate sufficient resources to function properly. Those recommendations in previous chapters provided the standard configuration parameters for the Oracle installation and for general Oracle functionality. However, in the event that your configuration needs to be tuned for a larger SGA or for more semaphores, you might have to tune the Linux parameters as well.

9.1.1. Configuring Shared Memory

The Linux shared memory parameters need to be large enough to allow Oracle to allocate enough shared memory for the SGA to fit into.
