Re: HPUX Error: 32: Broken pipe

Hi,
There's several "cases" on the forums about this issue. This one seems to cover it :

If not, try a search "Broken pipe" on the forums ...

Hope this helps,

Hi

First check that the listsner.log file hasn't crown out of size.

Second check your listener.ora for errors, and that you're using the right one. Set TNS_ADMIN parameter if placed elsewhere than $ORACLE_HOME/network/admin. If using trace check that trace directory excists.

Third Metalink reports on a error that might occur if you start the OTG from a shellscript:

Re: HPUX Error: 32: Broken pipe

From a networking point of view a "broken pipe" error just means the application tried to send(2) data on a socket that was connected but is no longer (see the send man page for a description). It may mean that the client end in your case has a problem, because its shutting down its connection before the listener is ready for this to happen - ie the listener still has data to send but the client is no longer there. There's nothing wrong with the listener.

Steve
