This paper contains recommendations for kernel parameters on HP-UX servers running Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS) software applications. The EBS software deployments are structured around Oracle Fusion Middleware platform; the installation is divided into a database tier and an applications tier, hosting services such as Java, Oracle Forms and Oracle Reports, along with other business logic components. This paper is intended to give an overview of base kernel parameters that should be set for EBS 11i or R12 systems. A system tuning exercise is always recommended before going into live production. The kernel settings offered in this paper are meant to give a starting point for future system tuning. HP also offers system performance tuning services for EBS systems.
