The SQL*Net Listener process dies and needs to be restarted.
The Alert log may contain additional information that suggests problems with OpenVMS processes.
skgpspawn failed:category = 27142, depinfo = 924, op = skgpspawn_error, loc = skgpspawn3
ksbsrv: No startup acknowledgement from forked process after 30 seconds
The first error shows a 'depinfo' value of 924.
This translates to the following OpenVMS error ($ exit 924):
%SYSTEM-F-NOSLOT, no PCB available
The OpenVMS help for this error is :
The maximum number of processes that can be created at one
time has been exceeded.
The second error suggests that we (Oracle) have requested that a new process to be started and,
after waiting for 30 seconds, find the process has not been successfully started.
