Symptoms

Using a script (batch or shell script ) to perform a DataPump export and to compress the dmp files using some compress tools (zip, gzip ... other), the export fails like:

Processing object type SCHEMA_EXPORT/TABLE/STATISTICS/TABLE_STATISTICS
ORA-39095: Dump file space has been exhausted: Unable to allocate 4096 bytes
Job "XXX"."XXX_EXPORT" stopped due to fatal error at 06:28:15

Changes

 There are no change. This is a random issue, happening only sometimes while the expdp script finishes successfully other times.
