Oracle 8.1.6 crash

I am running HPUX 11 with Oracle 8.1.6. $GB memory with a 1GB SGA.

Oracle crashed with a segmentation violation. The Oracle error was ORA-07445. Oracle said that the online redo logs got corrupted due to a memory corruption. They do not know what triggers this. This problem is very random and Oracle suggests going to a newer release although they have not found what is causing the problem.

Has anyone experienced a similar problem.

Re: Oracle 8.1.6 crash


several reasons for this. I would check oracle website. Even SAP-OSS has some 20 hits for various reasons for this, depending on diffrent sources.

Some are related to oracle parameters

Others are OP-Sys-dependend like
PHSS_16849 core 64bit HPUX Oracle Note 73835.1 for Oracle 64-Bit on HP-UX 11.0
PHSS_16849 : s700_800 11.0 LIBCL patch should be exchanged by a superseeded one

Do not know if this helps

Re: Oracle 8.1.6 crash

Hi Marc,

I'm always leary when vendors or developers start blaming "memory corruption" on HP-UX systems. If memory truly erred out there WILL be an entry in the syslog or the STM log. Lord knows, for the $ of HP ECC memory, it better let me know. So unless there is actually an entry, I'd turn the argument back on them, ESPECIALLY when they start the "new release" spiel. Seems awfully self-serving don't you think?
If that CAN be ruled out, AS WELL AS, faulty code - then a misconfigured kernel param would be the next likely culprit.
