This problem can occur on any platform.
Listener log shows repeating error stack below for connection requests to an Oracle10g R2 instance:
TNS-12518: TNS:listener could not hand off client connection
TNS-12549: TNS:operating system resource quota exceeded
TNS-12560: TNS:protocol adapter error
TNS-00519: Operating system resource quota exceeded
IBM/AIX RISC System/6000 Error: 11: Resource temporarily unavailable
Connection requests fail to connect to the Oracle instance. This is clearly a resource depletion problem.
