In what way does this not make sense ?
Amount of beer = bottle capacity X number of bottles
SHMSEG = size of a shared memory segment (bottle capacity)
SMHMAX = maximum number of shared memory segments (number of bottles)
Google is your friend, and will definitely give you less abuse than we will :-)
Searcing Google for "oracle linux shared memory" got 27600 pages and the
first of these was quite informative, even telling you about how to rebuild
a bit of Oracle for maximum performance. Oracle's like a Formula 1 racing car
- very expensive, very good at what it does, best not serviced by a back
street garage, and quite likely to crash and burn if not driven correctly.
