Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Internet Directory - Version 11.1.1.7.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Oracle Internet Directory (OID) 11g 11.1.1.7.0.

OID appears to dump cache after upgrading to BP02 or higher (reference Document 1614114.1, latest is BP03) onto 11.1.1.7.

After applying BP02 or BP03, a folder is created in /tmp/.oid/cache/ where a lot of non-readable data is getting stored, killing space. For example:

This is filling up the space drastically and server is going into unresponsive state.

Tried to claim the space by making the temp file null, but although searches work, a modify operation fails without any errors in the logs.
