DBMS_SERVER_ALERT.SET_THRESHOLD HANGS FOREVER AT RELIABLE MESSAGE

The session hangs while running below code:

/* OracleOEM */
BEGIN
dbms_server_alert.set_threshold(
:metrics_id,
:warning_operator,
:warning_value,
:critical_operator,
:critical_value,
1,
:consecutive_occurrences,
:instance_name,
:object_type,
:object_name);
END;


From the 10046 trace you can find the wait on 'reliable message'.
