RE: Listener is working but stopped updating logfile

        I've had this sometimes when our backup software touched the file and for a split second and blocked it. I've also had this happen when someone truncated the file incorrectly to clear it, usually by issuing something like "echo . > (logfile_name)". The only solution I found was to stop start the listener at the next opportunity, a reload wouldn't clear it. Not a good option but the only one I could find in a hurry.

Ruth, thanks for your response.
Yes. It does have enough space. Alert.log doesn't report anything.
