BEA jDrivers for Oracle
For this Oracle client version:
The following shared libraries are provided:
Oracle 126.96.36.199 and later patch sets
The HP-UX 11.0 default value for maximum threads per process is 64, which may be too low for WebLogic Server and many Java server applications in general. When the value is too low, WebLogic Server may have problems starting up.
BEA recommends that you use the maximum kernel setting for the max_thread_proc and maxusers parameters. Setting maxusers to a higher value increases other machine-wide limits, such as nkthread (the maximum number of kernel threads). The following table provides some examples.
Maximum threads per process
Soft file limit per process
Influences other parameters
Number of threads total on the system
Maximum number of processes
Number of pending timeouts
If you upgrade from 8.1 SP3 or SP4 to 8.1 SP5 by using SmartUpdate or the Upgrade Installer on an HP-UX 11i V2 on PA-RISC configuration, and then try to use the same tool to downgrade from 8.1 SP5 to 8.1 SP4 or SP3, the downgrade attempt may fail.
BEA recommends that you set the maxdsiz kernel parameter to a minimum value of 2 GB. This problem is being tracked by CR204521.
