Symptoms

For Oracle Financial Services Asset Liability Management (ALM) 8.0.x, you cannot increase the 'SharedMemory' parameter in the ofsrm.ini in $FIC_DB_HOME/conf to a value greater than 1GB.  The ALM Static Deterministic Process fails with "out of shared memory" when the configuration of SharedMemory in ofsrm.ini is 1.5 GB

If you decrease SharedMemory to a value of 1GB or lower, the ALM Process is successful.  However, you need to use a value > 1GB for optimal processing given the large quantity of Products, Currencies, and Scenarios defined.
