Oracle Intelligent Agent produce many defunc processes

hello
I had installed Oracle Intelligent Agent (Version 9.2.0.2) in an different ORACLE_HOME, different user/group as the ORACLE_HOME of the database. For this case I change the owner,group and permissions of dbsnmp-binary (chmod 6751 dbsnmp, chgrp dbsnmp).
After registering some event monitors - like database updown, listener updown, tablespace full and so on - Oracle Intelligent Agent produce manny defunc-processes. I had 10 installations of intelligent agent on different maschine and all show the same behavior.

Regards

Re: Oracle Intelligent Agent produce many defunc processes

hi,

this information is from Metalink.


Relink the Oracle Intelligent Agent and set the ownership and permission, Then restart the agent by performing the following actions:

1) Log on as oracle.

2) cd $ORACLE_HOME/network/lib
make -f ins_oemagent.mk install

Make sure it relinks without errors.

3) If so, then log in as root and rerun "root.sh" or manually do:

cd $ORACLE_HOME/bin
chown root dbsnmp
chmod u+s dbsnmp

4) Then log back in as oracle and do:

lsnrctl dbsnmp_start

Back on the console side, try a Navigator/Service Discovery/Refresh Services and make sure that agent can be contacted again.

If the job or event system for some reason doesn't work, try:

1) Remove all registered events and pending jobs from the console.

2) Clear job history.

3) On server:

Stop the agent
cd $ORACLE_HOME/network/agent
rm *.q and services.ora
cd $ORACLE_HOME/network/admin
rm snmp*.ora
cd $ORACLE_HOME/network/log
rm dbsnmp*.log and nmi*.log

4) And restart agent one more time. Refresh the agent from console.

Re: Oracle Intelligent Agent produce many defunc processes

Hi T G Manikandan
it is a new bug in 9.2.0.2.
See bug 2697921
the workaround is to disable Oracle Net UpDown job
the problem would be fixed in 9.2.0.3.0 patchset.
Ciao
