I'm frequently facing sessions problem in oracle8.1.6 (ora-0018). The application is web based and coding written in java. In the webserver(IPLANET) the setting for max sesions is 1000 which means 1000 users can connect simultaneously. To what extent I can increase session variable in oracle and what is its dependency? What is the maximum value I can set for sessions?
The database is now running in MTS. The present setting for
sesssions = 280. And the server have 2GB of RAM. And my present SGA is 790 MB.
Could any one throw some light on this....?
First, SESSIONS is not a variable but a parameter.
The maximum you can set is 2^31. Remember also that the two parameters ENQUEUE_RESOURCES and TRANSACTIONS are derived from SESSIONS.
