Multiple instances can have different values.
PROCESSES specifies the maximum number of operating system user processes that can simultaneously connect to Oracle. Its value should allow for all background processes such as locks, job queue processes, and parallel execution processes.
The default values of the
TRANSACTIONS parameters are derived from this parameter. Therefore, if you change the value of
PROCESSES, you should evaluate whether to adjust the values of those derived parameters.
