    Unanswered: Oracle crashed!

    This morning our Oracle server crashed. We were able to just start it up again, but nonetheless it's pretty odd. This is an Oracle 10g install on a Red Hat ES 3.0 system -- 2GB's memory and plenty of diskspace. Here's the error from the alert log:

    Thu Aug 26 12:36:31 2004
    DBW0: terminating instance due to error 472
    Instance terminated by DBW0, pid = 19328

    Browsing through the rest of the log, I see a lot of errors like this:

    found dead shared server 'S002', pid = (16, 209)
    found dead shared server 'S004', pid = (22, 120)
    found dead shared server 'S005', pid = (26, 221)
    found dead shared server 'S006', pid = (27, 101)
    found dead shared server 'S009', pid = (30, 248)
    found dead dispatcher 'D000', pid = (17, 236)
    found dead dispatcher 'D001', pid = (43, 30)

    Here's the top portion of one of the trace files:

    Current SQL statement for this session:

    I'm not sure how to track down what's causing the problem... should we consider turning off shared servers / dispatchers?

    One thing I've noticed is that our TEMP tablespace grows very quickly and when we gave it more space (up to 10GB) it immediately filled it all the way up. Maybe this is a problem?

    Anyways, hoping someone can get me started diagnosing this.

    Submit an iTAR. Only Oracle support can assist you.
    You can lead some folks to knowledge, but you can not make them think.
    The average person thinks he's above average!
    For most folks, they don't know, what they don't know.
    Good judgement comes from experience. Experience comes from bad judgement.
