DB_CACHE_ADVICE

Property Description
Parameter type String
Syntax DB_CACHE_ADVICE = { ON | READY | OFF }
Default value If STATISTICS_LEVEL is set to TYPICAL or ALL, then ON

If STATISTICS_LEVEL is set to BASIC, then OFF

Modifiable ALTER SYSTEM
Basic No

DB_CACHE_ADVICE enables or disables statistics gathering used for predicting behavior with different cache sizes through the V$DB_CACHE_ADVICE performance view.

Values:

  • OFF

    Advisory is turned off and the memory for the advisory is not allocated.

  • READY

    Advisory is turned off but the memory for the advisory remains allocated. Allocating the memory before the advisory is actually turned on avoids the risk of an error when you switch the parameter to ON.

    If the parameter is switched to this state from ON, the contents of the view are preserved and the memory for the advisory is retained.

    If the parameter is switched to this state from OFF, you may get an error.

  • ON

    Advisory is turned on. CPU and memory overheads are incurred. Attempting to set the parameter to this state when it is already in the OFF state may result in an error. Otherwise, the view (V$DB_CACHE_ADVICE) is reset and statistics are gathered to the newly refreshed view.

    If the parameter is in the READY state, you can set it to ON without any errors because the memory is already allocated. The view is reset and statistics are displayed in the newly refreshed view.
