Hanging Oracle Listener w/HPUX 11

Has anyone experienced a hanging Oracle Listener in Oracle 7.3.4 and HPUX 11.0? We just upgraded to HPUX 11 from 10.2 and now seem to have periodic service blocks that then hang the listener. We never experienced this problem under HPUX 10.2

Our work around has been to reload the listener every 20 minutes. While this works, it has not solved the underlying problem.

Any Ideas?

Re: Hanging Oracle Listener w/HPUX 11

sounds like it maybe the sort of problem that could patchable ?

Have you checked the
- listener.log
- listener.ora, tnsnames.ora
- alert.log
- syslog.log

for clues ?

John - Did you re-install or at least re-link Oracle after you upgraded HPUX? You need to do this, otherwise you've got HPUX 10.2 libraries linked into Oracle, running under HPUX 11.0. This may cause unpredictable results.

Hi,

If the listener.log is not sufficient for interpretation, you can try enabling listener trace. However, please bear in mind that listener trace files can be huge. But it is definitely collects more information that the standard listener.log in aiding troubleshooting.

Hope this helps. Regards.

Make sure the parameter
USE_PLUG_AND_PLAY_LISTENER=ON is commented out in the listener.ora file.

This could cause serious hangups

Hello John,
just some time back (when HP-UX 11 came out) I tried
"upgrading" to 11.00 and keeping Oracle 7.3.4 (but
for HP-UX 10) and was "runnable" - except for the
listener! You need to install Oracle 7.3.4 fore HP-UX 11!!!
HTH,
