Applies to:

Oracle Data Integrator - Version 11.1.1.6.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

An Oracle Data Integrator (ODI) Load Plan with numerous parallel steps is executed in an infinite loop.

After a couple of days running, the number of waits/locks on 

 is growing at a point that the Load Plan executions fail due to enq: UL - contentions.

After a restart of the ODI execution Agent, the executions immediately return to be normal behavior but after some time the issue is observed again.
