While creating CONTEXT indexes in a 32K blocksize tablespace, an error is logged in the alert.log:

ORA-00600: internal error code, arguments: [kti_memory_leak], [], [], [], [], [], [], []

Trace file shows:

Current SQL statement for this session:
INSERT /*+ SYS_DL_CURSOR */ INTO <owner>."DR$<index_name>$K" ("DOCID","TEXTKEY") VALUES

Stack trace:

ksedst <- ksedmp <- ksfdmp <- kgerinv <- kgeasnmierr
<- ktiassert <- ktiPoolOverflow <- kdilrub <- kdilroot_undoable
<- kdilcl0 <- kdblfx <- kdblfax <- kdblifl <- kdblfl
<- klafin <- kpodpfin <- kpodpmop <- opiodr

This error is generated while creating the second and subsequent TEXT indexes from the same session.  For instance, if four (4) text indexes are being created consecutively from the same session, the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th TEXT index creation will EACH generate an ORA-600 [kti_memory_leak] in the alert.log. Note that although the error(s) occur, the TEXT indexes are created successfully with the status of VALID.  This can be confirmed by querying USER_INDEXES as follows:


If creating more than nine (9) TEXT indexes consecutively from the same session, the 10th TEXT index creation will cause the user session to terminate with an ORA-3113.  The first nine TEXT indexes are VALID while the 10th will have the status of INPROGS.
