Hi Guys,
Actually i created a materialized view, and whenever i try to refresh data, using the following package(dbms_mview.refresh
), im getting the ORA-04030 error

ORA-12008: error in materialized view refresh path
ORA-04030: out of process memory when trying to allocate 1052696 bytes (callheap,kllcqas:kllsltba)

As far as i know, there no shortage of ram in this machine, im not sure what is causing this error,

Then i tried to do a bulk insert using a "INSERT /*+ APPEND */ "
in a package, when i execute it, im getting the same error again.


ORA-04030: out of process memory when trying to allocate 1052696 bytes (callheap,kllcqas:kllsltba)

The number of records im trying to insert is around 600,000, but if i try to repeat the same process with 50000 records, it works fine. i

Actually is there any oracle parameter i need to change, cause im afraid if i do that, later in production, it might effect some other modules
thanks for any advice

ORA-04030: out of process memory when trying to allocate string bytes (string,string)
Cause: Operating system process private memory has been exhausted
Action: none

It depends on the OS and Oracle can't do nothing.
Check if you can't allocate more memory to user (ulimit -a).
Otherwise check if you can't take less memory.
