Last updated on OCTOBER 05, 2020

Applies to:

JDBC - Version 11.1.0.7 to 11.2.0.3.0 [Release 11.1 to 11.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms


High CPU usage on application using JDBC 11.2.0.3 (in this case OAM 11.1.2.3 BP4).
The CPU load of the OAM managed server increases over time.

Top used threads show a common stack:

"Thread-47" prio=10 tid=<TID> nid=<NID> waiting on condition
[0x00000000436e7000]
java.lang.Thread.State: RUNNABLE
at java.nio.HeapByteBuffer.slice(HeapByteBuffer.java:80)
at oracle.jdbc.driver.NTFConnection.getNextNSPacket(NTFConnection.java:308)
at
oracle.jdbc.driver.NTFConnection.unmarshalOneNSPacket(NTFConnection.java:330)
at oracle.jdbc.driver.NTFConnection.run(NTFConnection.java:185)
---


This method is related with the Oracle JDBC Driver at class "oracle.jdbc.driver.NTFConnection.readFromNetwork".

The result is a gradual increase in CPU consumption from 4 - 80%, in a two week period. After a restart, the cpu load is normal again; then it rises again in a two week period.
