When a client process is abnormally disconnected from the Database (server) process, specifically at a point where the Database needs to negotiate and communicate certain OCI / TWO-TASK data to the client such as with character sets, OCI, etc., then the Database may throw one of the following errors in a UDUMP trace:

opiino: Attach failed! error=-1 ifvp=0


opiino: Attach failed! error=-1 ifvp=(nil)


Perhaps an abnormally high increase in connection activity from App Servers or a network condition or change causing instability.
