Network socket files are leaked when extproc session times out after upgrade to 12.1
Last updated on OCTOBER 03, 2016
Applies to:Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 220.127.116.11 and later
Max "inodes" was hit in /var/tmp/.oracle (network socket files) after upgrading from 18.104.22.168 to 22.214.171.124.
A file is created for every external procedure extproc session that times out and these socket files are not cleaned up in 126.96.36.199 in a standalone DB non-Grid environment.
The large number of files caused a production outage when maximum inodes was hit.
