Oracle have a white paper that say that you can use half to 2/3 of memory on the box for oracle. On our production machines we usually set SPS at 60-100 Mb all depending on Hit ratio's and size of DB. 9mb is way to small. Try 60mb and go from there.

Hope that helps.

Also a little tip, If you haven't got access to Metalink then try typing in your error message into google and see what you get back.
