Oracle Database Requirements

Oracle Database Requirements

Use the following guidelines when you set up the repository on Oracle:
  • Verify that the database user has the following privileges:

      ALTER TABLE

      CREATE CLUSTER

      CREATE INDEX

      CREATE OR REPLACE FORCE VIEW

      CREATE OR REPLACE PROCEDURE

      CREATE OR REPLACE VIEW

      CREATE SESSION

      CREATE TABLE

      DROP TABLE

      INSERT INTO TABLE

  • Set the following parameters for the tablespace on Oracle:
    <Temporary tablespace>
    Resize to at least 2 GB.
    CURSOR_SHARING
    Set to FORCE.
    MEMORY_TARGET
    Set to at least 4 GB.
    Run
    SELECT * FROM v$memory_target_advice ORDER BY memory_size;
    to determine the optimal MEMORY_SIZE.
    MEMORY_MAX_TARGET
    Set to greater than the MEMORY_TARGET size.
    If MEMORY_MAX_TARGET is not specified, MEMORY_MAX_TARGET defaults to the MEMORY_TARGET setting.
    OPEN_CURSORS
    Set to 3000 shared.
    Monitor and tune open cursors. Query
    v$sesstat
    to determine the number of currently-opened cursors. If the sessions are running close to the limit, increase the value of OPEN_CURSORS.
    UNDO_MANAGEMENT
    Set to AUTO.
  • If the repository must store metadata in a multibyte language, set the NLS_LENGTH_SEMANTICS parameter to CHAR on the database instance. Default is BYTE.
  • Informatica does not support Oracle public synonyms for repository tables. Verify that public synonyms have not been created for any tables in the database.
