I am having an IBM xSeries 346 Server and i have installed RedHat ES
I am planning to install Oracle 10G Release 2.
The hardware has 8Gb RAM and Intel Xeon Processor.
According to my Database administrator, he says that if the OS is not 64-bit
then the database cannot use the complete 8GB RAM.
But from my previous experience, we were having oracle 10g and we were
running on RedHat ES 3.0 (32-bit) and it was working fine.
Can you guys advice me on this...
Should i upgrade to 64-bit OS so that Oracle uses 8GB RAM ??
Thanks in advance,
