Automated Upgrade Tool (AUT) Fails with Error "ORA-04036: PGA memory used by the instance exceeds PGA_AGGREGATE_LIMIT" (Doc ID 2236209.1)

Symptoms

When upgrading an Agile Database (DB) using AUT it is taking very long time and the AUT log shows below error.

'ORA-04036: PGA Memory Used by the Instance Exceeds PGA_AGGREGATE_LIMIT'

Fact:

In AUT.log, after a certain point, Oracle is disconnected because it reached PGA_AGGREGATE_LIMIT value. Since the database was disconnected, the AUT script was just running and nothing actually was happening ( no upgrade).
