Dear support,

While running CheckDB we were getting warning in system as

BR0978W Database profile alert - level: WARNING, parameter: OPTIMIZER_FEATURES_ENABLE, value: 8.1.7 (<> 9.2.0)

our database is running at version

In order to avoid this warning we have done changes in INITSID.ora and changed

parameter OPTIMIZER_FEATURES_ENABLE = 9.2.0 from 8.1.7

but after restart we faced major performance issue in the system and there are other 2 parameters

automatically got changed because of this change as mentioned below.

OPTIMIZER_DYNAMIC_SAMPLING got changed automatically from 0 to 1

OPTIMIZER_MAX_PERMUTATIONS got changed automatically from 80000 to 2000

Now we have reverted settings back to previous i.e OPTIMIZER_FEATURES_ENABLE = 8.1.7

Due to which other 2 parameters also changed back to original vlues 0 and 80000 automatically.

Kindly suggess what should be the correct value for this parameter OPTIMIZER_FEATURES_ENABLE if our database version

is 8.1.7

Best Regards,

      note 124361 clearly says so.

      Do not set any parameters that are not mentioned in this note.

      Exceptions could be possible, but first try without.

      (Presuming your system is not a BW,

      and your SAP version is 4.0B or above. You didn't tell us.

      But nowadays almost all SAP systems are.)
