Does Argus Support A Higher DB_BLOCK_SIZE? (Doc ID 2342211.1)

Last updated on JUNE 26, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Argus Safety - Version 8.1.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The Argus 8.1.1 Install Guide states:
DB_BLOCK_SIZE (bytes): 8192
For all sizes of reports run per month

Does Argus support a higher DB_BLOCK_SIZE?

The DB_BLOCK_SIZE increase is mainly for Insight and Mart for the following reasons:

  1. The need to create long key indexes in the future, 32k BLOCK_SIZE will give much more room to avoid ORA-01450 errors.
  2. Since both Insight and Mart are data warehouse types of databases, 32k BLOCK_SIZE should have better performance.
