/var/log message

There is a message in the /var/log/messages. I need to investigate what is this all about. Can some one please help me in it? The name of the host is apple and it has RHEL 5.1 on it.

May 10 05:41:40 apple kernel: racgmain[14532]: segfault at 00000000142929b0 rip 00002aaaab9743d6 rsp 00007fffa6db1360 error 4

Re: /var/log message

racgmain is a Oracle RAC process. You should open a ticket on metalink.

Re: /var/log message

This means the "racgmain" process running with PID 14532 has crashed on May 10, 05:41:40.

A "segfault" (shorthand for "segmentation fault") means the program attempted to access a memory location that was not assigned to it. It usually means a bug in the program, but it can also occur if your RAM is failing.

If the crash tends to happen with one specific program only, it is most likely a program bug.
