Symptoms

Time after time some of the integrated replicat processes competely hangs
with the following symptoms

1) Writing to it's *.rpt log suddenly stops without any error or message.

2) Trying to communicate with replicat process by issuing SEND command
results in a "Timeout waiting for message" :


info DBI


REPLICAT DBI Last Started 2015-09-04 01:17 Status RUNNING
INTEGRATED
Checkpoint Lag 00:00:03 (updated 00:29:27 ago)

send DBI, stats


Sending STATS request to REPLICAT DBI ...
ERROR: sending message to REPLICAT DBI (Timeout waiting for message).

3) No errors are reported neither in ggserr.log nor in alert.log.

4) Killing and restarting replicat process resolves the issue for a while.

5) If we check STATE column of some v$gg_apply_* we can see that almost all of them have value "IDLE", except of v$gg_apply_receiver view. It's column STATE has value "Waiting for memory".

6) There was enough free memory in our Steams Pool at the moment of hanging:


select * from v$sgastat where pool like 'streams pool' and name='free memory'


streams pool free memory 12849013848 0
