liveCache Database Parameters

Use

The database system uses liveCache database parameters only for SAP liveCache database instances.

For more information about other database parameters, see General Database Parameters, Special Database Parameters and Support Database Parameters.

Changes to database parameters do not take effect until the database instance is restarted.

You can also change some database parameters while the database is running. In addition you can choose how long the change is to be effective for these database parameters:

¦      Until the next restart

¦      Not until after the next restart

¦      Immediately and permanently

Prerequisites

You use a SAP liveCache database instance.

SAP customers can find a detailed description of the liveCache database parameters in SAP note 833216.
