Oracle Database Errors or Warnings from Error ORA-00381 to ORA-00390

SQLServerF1

ORA-00381: cannot use both new and old parameters for buffer cache size specification
Cause: User specified one or more of { db_cache_size , db_recycle_cache_size, db_keep_cache_size, db_nk_cache_size (where n is one of 2,4,8,16,32), db_cache_advice } AND one or more of { db_block_buffers, buffer_pool_keep , buffer_pool_recycle }. This is illegal.
Action: Use EITHER the old (pre-Oracle_8.2) parameters OR the new ones. Don’t specify both. If old size parameters are specified in the parameter file, you may want to replace them with new parameters since the new parameters can be modified dynamically and allow you to configure additional caches for additional block sizes. Cache advisory can only be enabled with the new cache parameters.
ORA-00382: string not a valid block size, valid range [string..string]
Cause: User specified a value for db_nk_cache_size where n is one of {2, 4, 8, 16, 32}, but nk is not a valid block size for this platform.
Action: Remove corresponding parameter from the “init.ora” file and restart the instance.

ORA-00383: DEFAULT cache for blocksize string cannot be reduced to zero
Cause: User attempted to reduce db_cache_size to zero, or attempted to to reduce db_<n>K_cache_size to zero while there were still online tablespaces with blocksize <n>K. Note that since the SYSTEM tablespace cannot be taken offline, it is always illegal to set db_cache_size to zero.
Action: Offline any tablespaces with the corresponding blocksize and then perform the operation again.
ORA-00384: Insufficient memory to grow cache
Cause: The system could not allocate sufficient memory to grow the cache to the specified size.
Action: Attempt a smaller increase in the value of the parameter.

ORA-00385: cannot enable Very Large Memory with new buffer cache parameters
Cause: User specified one or more of { db_cache_size , db_recycle_cache_size, db_keep_cache_size, db_nk_cache_size (where n is one of 2,4,8,16,32) } AND use_indirect_data_buffers is set to TRUE. This is illegal.
Action: Very Large Memory can only be enabled with the old (pre-Oracle_8.2) parameters.
ORA-00386: use_indirect_data_buffers not supported
Cause: The system could not allocate sufficient memory to grow the cache to the specified size.
Action: Attempt a smaller increase in the value of the parameter.
ORA-00390: log string of thread string is being cleared, cannot become current log
Cause: An attempt to switch to a new online log for the redo thread failed because no reusable log could be found. This log is being cleared and will be useable when the clearing completes. The command that began the clearing may have terminated without completing the clearing.
Action: If the clear command is still executing then wait for its completion. If it terminated then reissue the clear command, or drop the log.
