PARALLEL_THREADS_PER_CPU

Property Description
Parameter type Integer
Default value Operating system-dependent, usually 2
Modifiable ALTER SYSTEM
Range of values Any nonzero number

Note:

This parameter applies to parallel execution in exclusive mode as well as in a Real Application Clusters environment.

PARALLEL_THREADS_PER_CPU specifies the default degree of parallelism for the instance and determines the parallel adaptive and load balancing algorithms. The parameter describes the number of parallel execution processes or threads that a CPU can handle during parallel execution.

The default is platform-dependent and is adequate in most cases. You should decrease the value of this parameter if the machine appears to be overloaded when a representative parallel query is executed. You should increase the value if the system is I/O bound.
