    As per the above example of command utility maxmem, we can get utilized memory is 1.2 GB, total memory of server is 2.0 GB and available memory is 800 MB of Oracle server.

    Maxmem is very useful when Oracle is encountering with ORA-04300 errors. Whenever Oracle database is dumping ORA-04300 memory-related errors, administrating Oracle server memory utilization is very important to resolve memory-related errors.
