Oracle is creating hundreds of thousands open file descriptors in /dev/shm (open files)
But there are only just hundreds of files in /dev/shm
1. Why is Oracle keeping hundreds of thousands Open File descriptors in /dev/shm while there are just hundreds of files ?
2. Is this a known issue? ( any notes/documents/bug reports/fixes exist).
3. Or is this expected behavior of oracle?
