Not Getting the Requested Number of Slave Processes When Database Profile SESSION_PER_USER Limit is Set

(Doc ID 1630039.1)

Last updated on JUNE 12, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version to [Release 10.2 to 11.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Database profile is used to set SESSION_PER_USER to 6. As a result you cannot have more than 6 sessions. If you try to open 7 sessions you get and ORA-02391 error.

This also causes that an SQL may not get the requested number of parallel processes.
