    Why not just ask your colleague? Seems kind of shady not to. try the following link.

    • Hello Warren,

      The link provided by you Picks the value from 2 tables which dba_hist_parameter and dba_hist_snapshot

      But in general we only have retention period of 7 days for ,

      this is same as the retention period of AWR reports ,

      Which is very less , So it will work as long as the changes were in last 7 days ,

      also the time period for collection of this info is generally 1 hour

      so lets say. some one changed a value and the changed it back to original, then we won't know

      We can increase the retention period and the collection interval but then we will need more space in the SYSAUX tablespace + this

      will cause load on the DB.

      Regards

    Hi Vishwanath,

    Please see below few options, let me know if anyone worked.

    1. If your database is daily backed up by BRTOOLS (BRBACKUP) it also backs up the initSID.ora and spfileSID.ora as a part of profile backup. Try to restore the pfile and spfile from the old backup in some other location. Compare them with current setting you will get to know which parameter was changed. I know its a long method but a way to get it.

    2. Check the DB13 Checkdb jobs output from before and after parameter change. It should give you some hints.

    Thanks,

    Sam
