Database hangs, is not available for users, and possible to crash after a while. This condition has also been observed by pressing Control-C in a SQL*Plus session.

This is an intermittent problem

Alert log shows errors:
ORA-00600: internal error code, arguments: [KGHLKREM1], [0x7DA72C420], [], [], [], [], [], [].

The error can also appear as (or with) one of the following:
ORA-7445 [qerblRop]

Trace files show HEAP corruption errors, and show the errors
occurring when pinning an object in memory. Additionally, there is much Parallel Query (PQ) processing

We can see different Call stacks:

kgesic1 kghfrunp kghfnd kghalo kghsupmm kghssgai qesblAlo qesblGetFilter qerblFetch . . .


kghalo  kspcrec ksucre kxfpProcessJoin


kghnerror kghadd_reserved_extent kghget_reserved_ext ent kghgex ent kghfnd kghalo kghgex kghalf kghalp kghssgai kggsmInitCompact 1360 qkssmMigrateExec 

If there is a heap dump, then you will typically have memory chunks with the "qesblFilter_seg" tag in the heap dump (This indicates that bloom filter is used).

If there is an explain plan, it will often show the existence of Bloom filters :BF0000
