FAQ
Hi,

I have been asked to review two awr reports  from a RAC two node cluster running Oracle 10.2.0.3 on Solaris. When I checked the OS settings in the AWR report I could see that MEMORY_PHYSICAL_BYTES was showing 16GB for each node. When I detailed this in the  report the DBA informed me that each server only had 8GB not 16GB.


It was my believe that the AWR report showed the memory on that server, is this correct ?

Thanks

Ronnie

    Hi Ronnie,
    I would suggest

    a) You could possibly execute a prtconf on solaris and cross verify with
    the AWR.
    b) Check with the system administrator if virtualization (DSD -- Dynamic
    System Domains or Containers) is enabled on the server which being the
    case, the memory could be configured to dynamically move between partitions
    or containers.

    Best Regards

    Sriram Kumar

    Yeah I don't trust that memory number. I usually go to OS tools when
    troubleshooting OS memory.
    Check the sar files on the global domain as well if you are on containers.
