***Checked for relevance on 19-Dec-2014***

This pertains to oracle 10.2 through 12.2 database instances on LINUX x86-64 bit systems running ASMM (i.e. SGA_TARGET with SGA_MAX_SIZE)

Goal

This document explains the supportability of LINUX HUGEPAGES on Oracle 10.X database instances running with Automatic Shared Memory Management (ASMM) and contrasts this to the documented limits of AMM usage with LINUX HUGEPAGES on version 11.X database instances. (also applies to 12c)
