EXPDP Fails Inconsistently With ORA-39095 When Combining With Compression Tools In Scheduled OS script (Doc ID 1665905.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 04, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version to [Release 10.2 to 12.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


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:

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


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