R12: Too Many Transaction Manager Log Files ( t*.mgr ) Are Generated In The Log Directory (Doc ID 1485461.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 04, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Concurrent Processing - Version 12.1 to 12.1.3 [Release 12.1]
Generic UNIX

Symptoms

Thousands of t*.mgr log files are created every day under the log directory.

The content of those t*.mgr log files shows the following error:

As a result of this, the disk space consumption is increasing at a high rate, and even the files can't be deleted manually using 'rm t*.mgr' because of the file delete limit in Unix and Linux.  Those are small files, but there are lots of them. 

Changes

 Recently upgraded to 12.1.3.
