ORA-600 [3137], ORA-600 [729] and ORA-600 [12224] During Operations Across Dblink (Doc ID 1939529.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 28, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Net Services - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The following symptoms have been attributed to this issue:

a) Local database is and a DBLINK to remote database is present.

b) The following error or similar is seen in the local alert log:

ORA-00600: [3137], [1010], [], [], [], [], [], [], [], [], [], []
ORA-00600: [729], [160], [space leak], [], [], [], [], [], [], [], [], []

Note that it seems the ORA-600 [729] is a consequence of the ORA-600 [3137]

c) On remote node we see:

ORA-00600 [12224]

d) In the 'Incident Context' stack for the 600[12224] error we see functions:

OCIPing []
kpncllcurs []

The symptoms (a) and (b) might differ slightly with respect to database versions and the 2nd argument of the ORA-600 [3137] error.
However, for this article to be considered applicable (c) and (d) must be true.


The problems were seen after applying latest PSU to one of the databases involved with the DBLINK.
