Property Description
Parameter type Integer
Default value None
Range of values 0 to 10
Basic No

AQ_TM_PROCESSES controls time monitoring on queue messages and controls processing of messages with delay and expiration properties specified.You do not need to specify a value for this parameter because Oracle Database automatically determines the number of processes and autotunes them, as necessary. Therefore, Oracle highly recommends that you leave the AQ_TM_PROCESSES parameter unspecified and let the system autotune.


If you want to disable the Queue Monitor Coordinator, then you must set AQ_TM_PROCESSES to 0 in your parameter file. Oracle strongly recommends that you do NOT set AQ_TM_PROCESSES to 0. If you are using Oracle Streams, then setting this parameter to zero (which Oracle Database respects no matter what) can cause serious problems.
