Last updated on JULY 28, 2020

Symptoms

The ORACLE_HOME/dbs directory on an 11.2.0.3 installation on AIX 6.1 is filling with core dump directories, which are generating every minute. There are no errors written to the alert.log.

 

The call stack extracted from the core files (using <Note: 1812.1>) is similar to:

pthread_kill <- p_raise <- raise <- abort <- skgdbgcra
<- sksdbgcra <- ksdbgcra <- ssexhd <- dbgerEvaluateRules <- dbgerEvaluateRules
<- dbgexPhaseII <- dbgexExplicitEndInc <- dbgeEndDDEInvocationImpl <- dbgeEndDDEInvocation <- ssexhd
<- dbgerEvaluateRules <- dbgerEvaluateRules <- dbgexPhaseII <- dbgexExplicitEndInc <- dbgeEndDDEInvocationImpl
<- dbgeEndDDEInvocation <- ssexhd <- ksmpclrpga <- opidcl <- opidrv
<- sou2o <- opimai_real <- ssthrdmain <- main
