What is Oracle AIM? or just OUM now....

What is Oracle AIM?

Oracle AIM is Oracle's Application Implementation Methodology and was Oracle's Project Management methodology and implementation strategy. It provides documentation templates that support the tasks that must be performed to assist the implementation participants in running and managing projects successfully.

When I say 'was', AIM has already been retired by Oracle as of Feb 2011. Last version before it was retired was 3.1 and it was called AIM Advantage.
Refer to the link below for published information on AIM retirement.
http://www.oracle.com/partners/campaign/eblasts/oracle-aim-aif-retired-322103.html

I fairly remember using some of the templates from 3.0 for few of my projects few years back. These templates simplify a lot of common steps towards any implementation. Only issue was to know different templates available. Google on for Oracle AIM and you may find some links to download these templates separately or together bundled in an exe(265498.EXE).

So does it mean that Oracle does not have implementation methodology now, NO Oracle has moved towards, rather evolved its AIM as OUM (Oracle Unified Method). With lot of acquisitions like SUN, PeopleSoft, Siebel, BEA etc Oracle has evolved towards OUM combining best of the methods of Oracle AIM, PeopleSoft Compass Method, BEA Liquid Enterprise Methodology, Sieble Results Roadmap etc which supports entire Enterprise Life Cycle concentrating not only on products but service and delivery as compared to AIM's product specific templates.

Unfortunately these methods or OUM is available for Oracle Partners. For more information on OUM follow the links below.

'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
53687091200

$ getconf PAGE_SIZE
4096

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:
kernel.shmall=16777216

and

# sysctl -p

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