What Is an Initialization Parameter File?
An initialization parameter file is a text file that contains a list of initialization
parameters. The file should be written in the client's default character set.
Sample initialization parameter files are provided on the Oracle distribution medium
for each operating system. A sample file is sufficient for initial use, but you will
probably want to modify the file to tune the database for best performance. Any
changes will take effect after you completely shut down and restart the instance.
