A parameter file is a file that contains a list of initialization parameters and a value for each parameter. You specify initialization parameters in a parameter file that reflect your particular installation. Oracle supports the following two types of parameter files:

  • Server Parameter Files - Binary version. Persistent.
  • Initialization Parameter Files - Text version. Not persistent.
