Symptoms

In a 10.1.2 infrastructure environment  there are many files under <O_H>\<machine name>_<db name>\sysman\recv\errors (Windows) $ORACLE_HOME/<machine name>_<db name>/sysman/recv/errors (UNIX) directory filling up the filesystem.

The files have the format A<id>.err_<timestamp> . The problem has no impact in the Application Server functionality apart from using disk space unnecessarily and the directory needs to be cleaned up periodically.
