Hi

We are applying the patch to upgrade the database from 10.2.0.3 to 10.2.0.4.

While running the catupgrd.sql after some time it got failed.

We increased the shared pool size and java pool size to 300M and 150M.

Following are the errors in the log file.

dbms_registry.check_server_instance;
ERROR:
ORA-03114: not connected to ORACLE

By referring ORA-00603 error it shows

An ORACLE server session is in an unrecoverable state.

Login to ORACLE again so a new server session will be created


We tried different new oracle sessions but again we are getting same type of errors. How we can fix this issue.

Any suggestions pls.

You would probably have to decrease the memory used by Oracle, since the error means that Oracle can't get enough memory allocated from the OS.

Are there any more detailed errors in the /u01/app/oracle/admin/JDV2DB1/udump/jdv2db1_ora_413704.trc tracefile?

Are there any ulimits set on the OS level?

Also, have a look at Metalink Note 233869.1 "Diagnosing and Resolving ORA-4030"

Hi Thomas,

Thanks for your reply.

I am finding below in trace file.

ORA-04030: out of process memory when trying to allocate 2097224 bytes (joxpp heap,f:Reserved3)
Current SQL statement for this session:

So it seems the Operating system doesn't want to give the oracle process more memory.

Either the ulimits are set to low, or there is not enough memory in the server for the memory settings of Oracle.

Have you checked the ulimits?

$ ulimit -n
2000

I increased the PGA_AGGREGATE_TARGET value from 24M 100M and executed it again.

Ummmmmm.. "ulimit -n" is the "number of file descriptors".

Do an "ulimit -a" to see all limits, especially the "max memory size" and "virtual memory"

I increased the PGA_AGGREGATE_TARGET



As I already said, the OS isn't giving you more memory, so it probably doesn't help to increase it even more on the Oracle side.

And do you have access to/read that Metalink Document? Perhaps ask the person who gave you the Patch-Files to also give you that document.

Yes Thomas you are right!

I checked the ulimit -a and found that

$ ulimit -a
time(seconds) unlimited
file(blocks) unlimited
data(kbytes) unlimited
stack(kbytes) 4194304
memory(kbytes) 32768
coredump(blocks) unlimited
nofiles(descriptors) 2000


I asked my Sysadmin to change memory also to Unlimited.

Once its changed, I will execute the scripts again and let me posted on the results.

After changing ulimit -a memory to unlimited, catupgrd.sql execution worked.

Thanks!
