Why Does the Agile EDM Supplied Database Template Default to a BLOCK_SIZE of 16k? (Doc ID 2379349.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 03, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Agile Engineering Data Management - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When building a database using the recommended Agile template, the sizing for BLOCK_SIZE defaults to 16,384 bytes.  When building the same database without the Agile Template, the sizing for BLOCK_SIZE defaults to 8192 bytes.

Would anything be sacrificed by switching to the more common 8192 bytes BLOCK_SIZE?
