The Oracle Risk Manager (RM) or ALM Stochastic process has run for a very long time and will not complete. It appears to be hanging.

If run with multiprocessing off, the same process will fail with an Internal Error.

The process may complete if a small number of rate paths are used.

The following error is displayed in the ofsrm.XXXXXX log file generated from the process on the server in the $OFSA_INSTALL/log or $FIC_DB_HOME/log/FusionApps $FIC_DB_HOME/log/FusionApps directory :

"Module Logging OFS errors: Out of Shared Memory"
