Property Description

Parameter type

Boolean

Range of values

true | false

Basic

No

DMON is a non-fatal Oracle background process and exists as long as the instance exists, whenever this parameter is set to true.

If the database is never going to be configured in an Oracle Data Guard broker configuration, then you can leave this parameter unspecified and accept the default value of false. If the database is part of an Oracle Data Guard broker configuration, then you can simplify automatic startup of the broker by setting this parameter to true in the initialization parameter file.
