Anybody know why?

Re: HPUX Error: 32: Broken pipe


Your oracle listener is no longer running. It failed or ran out of available connections.

I would assume its either a bug or too many connections, or there is a problem with how the application is trying to talk to the database listener.

Re: HPUX Error: 32: Broken pipe


I assume that you are asking about the "broken pipe" error. This is simply a loss of connection between a writing anad a reading process. Data that is written to a pipe for which the reading process has exiting before the writer will generate a SIGPIPE signal and result in an EPIPE (errno 32 or "broken pipe") error.

main, handling exception: Connection reset

main, SEND TLSv1 ALERT:  fatal, description = unexpected_message

main, WRITE: TLSv1 Alert, length = 2
