RE: Shooting yourself in the spfile

Replies:
Actually you don't have to have Word document to keep track of changes.
There is "UPDATE_COMMENT" column in v$parameter, and you set it
"COMMENT" clause when you run
ALTER SYSTEM SET ... COMMENT='whatever' SCOPE=...

Well, there is a limitation of 255 characters for comment.

Subject: RE: Shooting yourself in the spfile

Niall,

Aren't you glad that you still have the init.ora file? :)

As for the SPfile, Chris's example is the only one that I've seen so far
that makes any sense for using the Spfile. When you are managing
hundreds
of databases across many remote sites, the Spfile makes sense.

I just wish that the Spfile had a way of documenting when something was
changed. When I change the Init.ora, I leave notes within the file
detailing what changed and when for histories sake. The Spfile is just
a
mish-mash of the params not suitable for viewing. So now, I would need
to
update two things - the Spfile (via OEM or SqlPLus) and a Word document
keeping track off changes.

I'm not sure if this is better or worse.
