Symptoms

Multiple trace files are generated in the Enterprise Manager Management Agent's diag directory, thus creating space constraints on the server where the Agent is running.  These files have the extension *.trm and are generated frequently for example:-

-rw-r----- 1 oracle oinstall 21596 Feb 28 12:55 ora_31424_47499892974800.trm

Normally, these files are created under

$HOME/oradiag_<owning user>/diag/clients/user_<owning user>/host_*/trace

eg.

$HOME/oradiag_oracle/diag/clients/user_oracle/host_140907536_11/trace

But will not necessarily always be found under $HOME. The $HOME directory can be changed to a different location if following the advice from <note: 1307259.1> "How to Prevent The Oradiag_<owning user> (eg oradiag_oracle) Directory writing to $HOME When Starting The 11g Agent"


In this particular example, the files are seen under:-

$AGENT_HOME/sysman/log/diag/clients/user_<owning user>/host_*/alert
$AGENT_HOME/sysman/log/diag/clients/user_<owning user>/host_*/trace

In conjunction with the *.trm files, *.trc files may also be seen.
