How to reduce SGA allocated at start of instance?
I was trying to see if there is anyway I can reduce memory allocated to SGA when the db was started, without restarting database?
I'm using "memory_target=4G" parameter in init.ora file, there is no memory_max_target, sga_target or sga_max_size parameter.
1. So with the current pfile db was started and SGA was allocated 4G because of "memory_target" parameter.
2. Show parameter displays, SGA_MAX_SIZE = 4G
3. Show SGA; , displays 4G being allocated
4. I did "ALTER SYSTEM SET MEMORY TARGET=2G;"
5. SHOW PARAMETER displays
MEMORY_TARGET = 2G
6. Show SGA;, still displays 4G and memory not reduced since SGA_MAX_SIZE was set as 4G because of MEMORY_TARGET parameter when instance was started.
On 64-bit platforms and non-Windows 32-bit platforms, when either
MEMORY_MAX_TARGET is specified, the default value of
SGA_MAX_SIZE is set to the larger of the two parameters. This causes more address space to be reserved for expansion of the SGA.\
I don't think there is anyways but still wondering, is there anyway to bring SGA to 2G without db restart?
DB is using too much memory and want to reduce that.
Thanks in advance for all inputs.
