Symptoms

Setting a parameter globally at database level is overriding the parameter set at instance level in memory. This applies to all applicable parameter modifiable with scope both or memory.

alter system set <parameter>  scope=both sid='*';  -- will make changes in memory of all the instance ( will overwrite values set individually until restart of the instance and then they will read spfile and instance parameter will take precedence )

alter system set <parameter>  scope=memory sid='*';  --  will make changes in memory of all the instance  ( will overwrite values set individually on instance)

alter system set <parameter>  scope=spfile  sid='*';  -- No changes on memory and respective instance parameter value will take precedence over global.
