GoldenGate For Teradata Not Releasing Semaphores on AIX platform (Doc ID 2124067.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 23, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle GoldenGate - Version 11.2.1.0.2 to 12.2.0.1.0 [Release 11.2 to 12.2]
IBM AIX on POWER Systems (64-bit)

Goal

We are seeing that on the server we run GoldenGate for Teradata (Version 11.2.1.0.2 OGGCORE_11.2.1.0.2T3_PLATFORMS_120724.2205), the semaphores build up over time and eventually run out. Once this happens, we cannot get into ggsci. It just hangs. We are using the Teradata client version 14.10. Specific ODBC version is tdodbc1410.tdodbc1410 14.10.0.2. We are going against Teradata V14.10 database.

We believe that Goldengate is not cleaning up used sempahores and causing them to run out.
