Importance of TCP/UDP Parameters in 11gR2

(Doc ID 1307804.1)

Last updated on JUNE 02, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version and later
IBM AIX on POWER Systems (64-bit)
***Checked for relevance on 16-Dec-2013***



The default values of the TCP / UDP parameters on AIX systems are:

$ /usr/sbin/no -a | fgrep ephemeral
tcp_ephemeral_high = 65535
tcp_ephemeral_low = 32768
udp_ephemeral_high = 65535
udp_ephemeral_low = 32768

Are these ignorable settings? What's the primary use of these tcp/udp settings?
