I was trying to open alert log for one of the issue happening in the database , was unable to open the alert log . The opening of file failing with
ex: 0602-101 Out of memory saving lines for undo.
This happens when the alert log size sometimes grows too big .
To overcome this issue , type the below snippet on the server terminal
export EXINIT="set ll=80000000"
After exporting the above , try to open the alert once again
oracle@myoraclenode1:/oracle/app/rdbms/diag/rdbms/caouat/MYDB/trace>view alert_MYDB.log "alert_MYDB.log" [Read only] 2006161 lines, 117728225 characters 2019-03-07T12:13:13.280081+03:00 Adjusting the default value of parameter parallel_max_servers from 1920 to 780 due to the value of parameter processes (1000) Starting ORACLE instance (normal) (OS id: 54395506)
