Goal

Over the past couple of years you have occasionally seen the exception "OALL8 is in an inconsistent state" - primarily in application server log files but also sometimes in the log file from a large standalone Java application. The exceptions were intermittent and could not be reproduced at will. You were not able to identify a cause for any of the occurrences of the exception. You ask if there is any information that will help you to understand this exception.
