Oracle Application Server 10g OPMN is spinning / consuming a high amount of CPU
You may see the ORACLE_HOME/opmn/logs/ons.log (OracleAS 10.1.2) or ORACLE_HOME/opmn/logs/opmn.log (OracleAS 10.1.3) growing large - filling up with lines like:
[ons-messages] Connection 127.0.0.1,6100 invalid notification header
Once CPU consumption passes the host machine's capacity threshold OPMN commands will begin to fail. For you example you may see:
Unable to connect to opmn.
Opmn may not be up.
The issue can be seen with OPMN running in technology stacks which use:
- Oracle Application Server 10g Release 2 ( 10.1.2 )
- Oracle Application Server 10g Release 3 ( 10.1.3 )
- Oracle Identity Management 10g Release 3 ( 10.1.4 )
- Oracle HTTP Server ( Apache 1.3) from the AS or Database Companion CD
- Oracle HTTP Server ( Apache 2.0) from the AS or Database Companion CD
The issue typically occurs when Oracle Application Server or Oracle HTTP Server reside on the same machine / server as an Oracle Server (Database).
