Max "inodes" was hit in /var/tmp/.oracle (network socket files) after upgrading from 188.8.131.52 to 184.108.40.206.
A file is created for every external procedure extproc session that times out and these socket files are not cleaned up in 220.127.116.11 in a standalone DB non-Grid environment.
The large number of files caused a production outage when maximum inodes was hit.
