Best Practices shows advice for deprecated Oracle 10gR2 parameter, for example parallel_automatic_tuning or log_archive_start is the Best Practices advice related to the used database version?
The Best practices topics are related to the appropriate version, but there is a bug in the specific topic: a deprecated parameter is mentioned in the discussion of one recommendation and in the other case there is a recommendation to adjust a deprecated parameter. In the best practice recommendation for setting the parallel_max_servers initialization parameter, the explanation discusses the parallel_automatic_tuning parameter. The parallel_automatic_tuning parameter was deprecated in 10.1, so this discussion is not relevant for versions 10.1 or higher. The parallel_max_servers parameter recommendation itself still applies in 10g. The best practice recommendation for the log_archive_start parameter should not be generated in 10g. This parameter was deprecated in 10.1.
