More spfile goodness

Niall Litchfield


A while back we had a conversation about the advisability or not of using spfiles. IIRC what I suggested was sensible if you were going to use them was that you create a backup first using the create pfile from spfile command. I ran into this today

SQL> create pfile from spfile;
create pfile from spfile
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-00600: internal error code, arguments: [733], [538970160], [pga heap], [], [], [], [], []

The 733 argument shows that is essentially an out of memory condition, the second argument is the amount of memory in bytes requested!

This is apparently due to a corrupt spfile - per support.
