- The <AGENT_INST>/sysman/log/gcagent.log shows:
2016-11-14 07:57:04,213 [164:E4B31AB4:GC.Executor.1 (oracle_listener:LISTENER_ORCL:Response)] INFO - Target [oracle_listener.LISTENER_ORCL] is marked as in DOWN state
2016-11-14 07:57:04,213 [164:E4B31AB4] INFO - Target [oracle_listener.LISTENER_ORCL] is marked as in DOWN state
This is a mis-leading and false alert since the listener is up and running fine during this time.
