Dear all,

We are getting this error ORA -04031 even thogh there is lot of free memory in shared pool.
We have flushed shared pool, then also we are getting error 04031 in alert log file. We are unable to run any stmt. We can't shut down it since it is production database.
Kindly help.

ORA-04031: unable to allocate %s bytes of shared memory (\"%s\",\"%s\",\"%s\",\"%s\")
 *Cause:  More shared memory is needed than was allocated in the shared
          pool.
 *Action: If the shared pool is out of memory, either use the
          dbms_shared_pool package to pin large packages,
          reduce your use of shared memory, or increase the amount of
          available shared memory by increasing the value of the
          INIT.ORA parameters "shared_pool_reserved_size" and
          "shared_pool_size".
          If the large pool is out of memory, increase the INIT.ORA
          parameter "large_pool_size".

Michel

The ORA-04031 error is usually due to fragmentation in the library cache or shared pool reserved space.

Once again you show that don't know other things than copy others post.
Copying Metalink materials is illegal and not allowed here.

Your post was just a copy and paste of Kelvin Woo's answer in Metalink forum thread 473260.995.

Another useful Metalink note is 146599.1 "Diagnosing and Resolving Error ORA-04031".
