India Localization

India Localization is a major part of any Indian company using Oracle ERP.

What is this India Localization(IL). Why is it so important.?

This is the module for Payrol/payables/receiving or for any transaction which comes under Local Indian taxasion rules. This is the module through which TDS (Tax Deduction at source) is collected wrt Indian taxation rules. This module belongs to JA_TOP for which the development work is done in India and it has its own library stack and its own way of applying patches. Since taxasion comes under India Regulatory act which makes it important to manage/implement this module without any flaws which makes it very hard on the client to test each and every scenario.

In 11i most of the readers would know that the patch details are kept in ad_applied_patches and ad_bugs but for IL it is kept under JAI_APPLIED_PATCHES.

India Localization patches are applied to IL Patch application tool which comes with the patch,

'Linux-x86_64 Error: 28: No space left on device' While trying to start the database -- Error

SQL> startup mount pfile='/tmp/initdlfasp12.ora'
ORA-27102: out of memory
Linux-x86_64 Error: 28: No space left on device

This as you can see is on Linux x86 with 64 bit processor. We got this error after we changed SGA on 10gR2 database. So was sure that this is something to do with the OS.

Parameters to check for this are shmall.

shmall is the total amount of shared memory, in pages, that the system can use at one time.

$cat /proc/sys/kernel/shmmax

$ getconf PAGE_SIZE

As per Oracle SHMALL should be set to the total amount of physical RAM divided by page size.

Our system has 64GB memory, so change kernel.shmall = 1024 * 1024 * 1024 * 64 / 4096 = 16777216

Once this value is calculated you can modify Linux system configuration file directly.

$ su - root
vi /etc/sysctl.conf file:


# sysctl -p

Once this is done the database was started without any problem.
