JFS2 filesystem mounted with CIO option (introduced with AIX 5.2)


If tempfiles are located on a JFS2 filesystem mounted with the CIO (Concurrent I/O) option, introduced with AIX 5.2, then you might see ORA-600 [srsnext_1] being raised when extents are allocated in the tempfile, eg. when doing large sort operations.

Use the "mount" command to check for filesystems with CIO option:

$ /usr/sbin/mount | grep cio

Then check if any tempfiles are located on any of these filesystems:

SQL> select name from v$tempfile;
