Symptoms

Memory growth is observed by the propagation process; i.e the following query shows large memory allocations associated with PGA and UGA heaps ; memory continues to grow as propagation is ongoing :

select a.sid, a.statistic#, b.name, a.value 
from v$sesstat a, v$statname b 
where a.sid in (select /*+ rule */ sid from dba_jobs_running where 
job in (select /*+ rule */ job from dba_jobs )) 
and b.statistic# in (20,21,25,26) 
and a.statistic# = b.statistic#;

The propagation job may then subsequently fail with the error :

ksedmp: internal or fatal error
ORA-00600: internal error code, arguments: [kwqpcbk179], [1], [1369], [], [], [], [], []
