Last updated on DECEMBER 06, 2016
Applies to:Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 22.214.171.124 to 126.96.36.199 [Release 11.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.
If a system has a high CPU count and there is no value set for parallel_max_servers then the system may try to set the default value of the parallel_max_servers parameter higher than is allowed, the following errors could be generated in both alert.log and trace files:
ORA-02097: parameter cannot be modified because specified value is invalid
ORA-00068: invalid value 6360 for parameter parallel_max_servers, must be between 0 and 3600
CKPT (ospid: 22135): terminating the instance due to error 2097
This can cause an instance shutdown if the number of system CPUs alters dynamically.
CPU_COUNT is not explicitly set in init.ora file
stack trace: ksbcpu_mod()->ksbcpcb()->kxfpCPUCountUpdate()
