5599: memory fault (coredump)

Hi,
My export (database backup) process ended with an error (5599: memory fault coredump).
I have checked that there was enough memory and swap is availble to use and also File System have enough space to store that backup.
Please help
Thanks.

"memory fault" doesn't occur due to lack of memory. It occurs due to violation of access. That is, the process tried to access a memory location that it was not supposed to.

:) Sorry i forgot to tell. This is Oracle ofcourse. Now oracle people are saying that there is some kind of memory leak. So need to patch it up.
Thanks

"memory leak" and "memory fault" are two different problems. Memory leak occurs when an application forgets to 'free' its unused memory.

The core dump should have created a crash-data file or vmzcore, search for those files and contact HP Support for identification of the crash portion of the system.
