    Creating 32K Block Size


    I tried to create a database with 32K block size, but i am getting the following error.
    $ sh

    Does this mean we cannot create a database with block size greater than 16k.

    max block size is platform dependent -- consult your oracle platform documentation for details.

    Looks like you'd have to select a block size between the two mentioned sizes. Depending on my application OLTP and DSS, I either use 8k or 16k... mind you it depends on what sort of block contention you want and the size of the database and the frequency of updates etc.... and many other considerations.

    db_block_size is operating system dependent.

    Appropriate values for 8i are:

    2048 � 16384 Linux, Solaris 32-bit
    2048 � 32768 AIX, HPUX, Tru64, Solaris 64-bit
