ALTER SYSTEM SET <system_parameter> = [ <literal> | MAX | MIN ]
ALTER SYSTEM modifies the value of a system parameter. The new value is retained until it is replaced by a subsequent ALTER SYSTEM, or the SQLstream system is shut down. For example:
ALTER SYSTEM SET auto_commit = TRUE;
Using ALTER SYSTEM to set system parameters (and the documentation of those parameters) is explained in the Developer's Guide topic on Configuring SQLstream.
