Oracle 11gR1 enhancements to the initialization parameters management

Filed under: Oracle 11g New Features — H.Tonguç Yılmaz @ 1:53 pm

Oracle Database 11.1 now upon startup writes values of initialization parameters to the alert log in such a way that when you loose your SPFILE or PFILE it is now easier to copy and paste them to create a new PFILE.

Also the SPFILE or PFILE that was used to open the instance is now mentioned with an additional line.

Also now you can create a pfile or spfile from the active instance’s current values of the initialization parameters.


CREATE PFILE FROM MEMORY;

CREATE SPFILE FROM MEMORY;

This feature gives an opportunity to compare the parameters used at that moment with the last startup ones.
