ORA-7445 [__doprnt_wide()+11740] on HP-UX (Doc ID 824934.1)

Last updated on JUNE 13, 2013

Applies to:

Oracle Server - Enterprise Edition - Version: 9.2.0.1
HP-UX Itanium
HP-UX PA-RISC (64-bit)

Symptoms

When running Oracle 9.2 or later on HP-UX, you might be getting an error similar to the following in the alert log:

ORA-07445: exception encountered: core dump [__doprnt_wide()+11740] [SIGSEGV] [unknown code]
[0x800003FB00080000] [] []


The call stack in the trace file would look like:

... __doprnt_wide _doprnt sprintf kkslrev opidsa kpodny ...

Note that the important thing here is the sprintf - not the functions calling sprintf.
