Oracle RAC

Multiple instances can have different values.

Note:

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

Note:

When the PROCESSES initialization parameter is set to a value that is lower than the documented default value for the PARALLEL_MIN_SERVERS parameter in the table above, the database sets the default value of PARALLEL_MIN_SERVERS to a value that is lower than the documented default value. The lower default value enables the database to start service processes and allows user processes to connect to the database.
