Last updated on AUGUST 31, 2021

Applies to:

Oracle HTTP Server - Version to [Release AS10gR2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Http server processes are hanging and using 6.2% cpu time. A few of these are getting created and the cpu usage eventually goes up to 100%

Access log shows these http processes are getting created in increments of 5 minutes apart and are calling: /pls/portal/htp.p?cbuf=Test

Server-status information shows these are coming from the iasconsole.

Killing the processes and shutting down iasconsole stops the hanging from happening


http listening port was changed.
