Recommended db_files in oracle 9.2

Hi,

Currently we had used up the db_files in our oracle db. The current value is 254. Is there a maximum value(data file) that we can specified? What is the guidline?

Regards

Lauran

    Hi,

    Juan gave you the official info on the max number of files.

    IMHO, it's not a good idea to have too much hundreds files.

    In the past, due to filesystem limits, the max size of our data files was set to 2 GB.

    We ended up with more than 400 files.

    Now, we resize these files in order to keep the number of files under control.

    Of course it creates files fragmentation : nothing is perfect !

    Regards,

    Olivier
