About Buffer Pools Used in Storage Control File Templates
Siebel eBusiness Applications use four buffer pools in the storage control file templates:
- One 4-KB buffer pool for 4-KB table spaces (the default name is BP1)
- One 4-KB buffer pool for all indexes (the default name is BP2)
- One 16-KB buffer pool for 16-KB table spaces (the default name is BP16K1)
- One 32-KB buffer pool for 32-KB table spaces (the default name is BP32K1)
Multiple buffer pools can be used for each page size. If you require multiple buffer pools, use the Siebel Database Storage Configurator (
dbconf.xls) or any other method described in Preparing the Database Layout to enter these values.
Your DBA needs to activate and grant use of buffer pools before you can perform the Siebel installation. See Allocating Space for Buffer Pools and Storage Groups for an example of buffer pool definitions.
