The Oracle Applications Manager (OAM) may report that every Oracle Application Forms process is a runaway process. Several warnings may appear in the OAM log file over the duration of day.
Navigate through OAM as:
Applications System -> System Alerts and Metrics -> Search System Alerts -> System Alert Details
One may observe the following items:
1. Message: A Runaway process with PID <pid_number> is detected on NODE <application_node>
2. Module: fnd.oam.formsrt.FrmRTProc
A review of the OAM Generic Collections Service log files may show several errors similar to this:
[18:45:2:129, 2/27/10] Entered getRT data list in RTProc
[18:45:6:649, 2/27/10] In RTI Filter. The file name of RTI File is /u01/prd/comn/admin/log/HAEPRD_haemt13/em_10830.rti

Verifying if these files are on disk, will show that they are not. These files appear to be "bogus" files and do not exist.
The issue could be triggered after applying an ATG Rollup Patch or a Developer 6i patchset. That however is just an observation of the symptom. The issue is a threshold of certain OAM profile values. It is not unusual for the Forms executable to have a larger memory foot print after either of the above patches.
