Symptoms

Adding multiple tempfiles to an empty temp tablespace generates the following error:

ORA-00600: internal error code, arguments: [kghstack_free1], [list of datafile #'s], [], [], [],
[], [], []

Example that produces the error:

ALTER TABLESPACE PSTEMP ADD TEMPFILE
'<FILSYSTEM_PATH>/xxx01.dbf' SIZE 1000M REUSE,
'<FILSYSTEM_PATH>/xxx02.dbf' SIZE 1000M REUSE,
'<FILSYSTEM_PATH>/xxx03.dbf' SIZE 1000M REUSE

The call stack contains the following:

kghstack_free <- ksmfrs <- atsdrv <- opiexe <- opiosq0 <- kpooprx <- kpoal8

 

The tracefile shows a corrupt memory header, which will look similar to this:

"Corrupted stack chunk header at location <memory_address>"
