Memory leak in solaris 9

Hi ,
I have Oracle9i database running on Solaris 9. After every 6 days my solaris box went out of space although its a test box and there is no activity on the system. Why the hell it takes all the ram and swap space when there is no activity on the system except Oracle Instance is running with no user connection. What process are running in the background that takes all the memory and i have to restart this box every week. IS THERE ANT PATCH OF MEMORY LEAK FOR SOLARIS9?. I am not a solaris administrator and i have to fix this problem before moving my system to production. I would really appreciate your help.
Thanks.

Hi ,
I have Oracle9i database running on Solaris 9. AfterI have had for some months been running oracle 9i (and 8i) under solaris 9. There have been no problems and the server has been stable.
It sounds like you may have misconfigured the solaris kernel. It also sounds like your SGA is too large to fit in memory.
So I guess the first step would be to check the SGA and then the /etc/system file.
Here is what mine looks like for example:
SQL> show sga

You need to gather more system information to help you troubleshoot.

  • Process memory leak issue  solaris 10

    I have a process which has a memory leak issue. I ran this process on solaris 9 as well as solaris 10. When i run prstat command i get a different output for two. Funny thing is that memory leak noted in solaris 10 is much more than that in solaris 9 e.g if it is 1 MB in solaris 9 then its 4 MB in solaris 10.
    What can be possibly causing this ? Is this related to kernel implementation on diff solaris ?

  • Memory leak in Solaris - SunOS 5.7, jre1.3.1

    Hi,
    I hava a java application that spawns about 100 threads. Each thread sends a request to WebLogic server 6.1. We are using Oracle 8.1.7. They are all running in a Sun box, 2 CPUs and 6gig memory.
    JRE = 1.3.1
    SunOS = 5.7
    Weblogic = 6.1
    Oracle = 8.1.7
    (All running on the same box)
    When we start the client application, running top shows that ,
    the client JVM process - uses 40 MB of memory
    WebLogic - uses 250 MB of memory
    But the available memory comes down drastically (almost by 350 MB), and on bringing both the client and weblogic down, we are not able to get this 350 MB back
    Running JProbe, doen not show any memory leak in our application
    we are using the hotspot client version
    -Xms = 128m
    -Xmx = 128m
    Any help is appreciated

    It looks like i am also facing the same problem with my application . If by some chance you were able to solve this problem do send a mail to [email protected] I just posted the question. while searching the web i found your question which looks similar but not answered. Hope you could give me some input

  • Memory leak in Solaris 10?

    Dear all,
    I have installed and configured a Solution Manager 4.0 system SPS 15  on a Solaris 10 T2000 SPARC hardware with 8 core CPUs and 32 GB of RAM. The database is Oracle 10.2.0.2.   My Java virtual machine version is 1.4.2_17. When I start the system and go to st06, I see that I have 26 GB of RAM free
    A few hours (sometimes even one hour) later and without any activity on the system whatsoever (it is brand new so nobody but myself is using it) I execute st06 and it looks like I only have 1 GB of memory left.
    My saposcol is consistent with my kernel level (patch 133, which is the patch for the Support Stack 15). I had the same problem with support stack 13 as well ( so upgrading kernel didn’t make any difference)  and Java virtual machine 1.4.2_13
    I have the same problem even when I start the system without starting the Java Stack (set parameter rdisp/j2ee_start to 0), so I do not believe that it has to do with the Java virtual machine or the Java Stack in general
    Any ideas ?
    Many thanks
    Andreas

    Hello,
    Looks like Solution Manager is only using 4.4 GB from what I see in prstat. Shouldn't I worry at all then ?

  • Memory leak in solaris 2.5.1

    Hi,
    I have a multithreaded application running under Solaris 2.5.1 , all
    created threads are dettached , but even after i call pthread_exit() function, the allocated memory is not freed up, is it normal ? Solaris only freed up the allocated memory when other program call for this ?or there is another funtion i need to call after pthread_exit() ?
    Regards,

    It looks like i am also facing the same problem with my application . If by some chance you were able to solve this problem do send a mail to [email protected] I just posted the question. while searching the web i found your question which looks similar but not answered. Hope you could give me some input

  • Very high memory usage..possible memory leak?  Solaris 10 8/07 x64

    Hi,
    I noticed yesterday that my machine was becoming increasingly slow, where once it was pretty snappy. It's a Compaq SR5250NX with 1GB of RAM. Upon checking vmstat, I noticed that the "Free" column was ~191MB. Now, the only applications I had open were FireFox 2.0.11, GAIM, and StarOffice. I closed all of them, and the number reported in the "Free" column became approximately 195MB. "Pagefile" was about 5.5x that size. There were no other applications running and it's a single user machine, so I was the only one logged in. System uptime: 9 days.
    I logged out, logged back in, to see if that had an affect. It did not. Rebooted and obviously, that fixed it. Now with only FireFox, GAIM, and a terminal open, vmstat reports "Free" as ~450MB. I've noticed if I run vmstat every few seconds, the "Free" total keeps going down. Example:
    unknown% vmstat
    kthr      memory            page            disk          faults      cpu

    Is this normal and I just need to toss another gig in, or what?

  • Find memory leak

    Hi All ,
    In our SAP application server (Solaris 10 X86 running on hardware HP ProLiant BL685c G5) physical memory available is day to day decreasing drastically. We suspect, there is a memory leak.
    Could you please let us know how to find memory leak in Solaris.
    Regards,
    Rajesh.

    Hi Rajesh
    Memory leaks have a large number of possible causes, including:
    •Unsupported hardware or software
    •Custom Scripting
    •Misconfiguration
    •Third party hardware and software issues
    The prstat command can be used to gather basic performance data to help identify if there are any processes consuming a large amount of memory. For example, the data below is sorted by the SIZE column. SIZE is the total virtual memory size of the process:
    prstat -s size
    If you are experiencing some of the symptoms described above or if you suspect a memory leak, it is particularly important that performance data is captured so the memory leak can be confirmed. It is important to gather at least the following pieces of information:
    •Process ID (PID)
    •Size of the process
    •The executing command
    •The timestamp information showing exactly when the data was captured.
    while true
    do
    for pid in `cat pids`
    do var=`date|cut -d' ' -f4`
    echo "$var :\c" >> ps.log.$pid
    ps -eo pid,vsz,rss,pcpu,args | grep $pid |grep -v grep >> ps.log.$pid
    done
    sleep 30
    done
    You could check the memory utilisation details through
    #mdb -k
    ::memstat

  • Memory leak when redirecting to a remote XFree86 server

    Hi,
    I'm running a Java application, which controlls our network equipment.
    The application is written by our development team. It installs a graphical
    user frontend in order to allow interoperation with the network administrators.
    The application is run using the following environments:
    * Windows NT 4.0
    * Sun Solaris 8, local Xsun X11 server
    * Sun Solaris 8, XFree86 X11 server located on a linux host
    * Sun Solaris 8, CygWin/XFree86 X11 server running on a Windows NT host
    It turns out, that the application runs fine, if the application and the GUI either
    run both on a Windows NT host or the Sun workstation. However, if the application
    is launched on a Sun workstation and the X display is redirected to any XFree86
    X11 server, each change of the GUI focus - either forced by a mouse-click, or
    an canvas being changed by the application itsself - consumes an amount of
    3 MB of memory and never releases this again.
    So I suppose any memory leak in the Swing/X11 interface ...
    I've already searched SunSolve and installed all patches addressing memory leaks
    in Solaris 8 and Xsun ...
    Also our development team already has profiled the application using tools
    like OptimizeIt without being able to locate any memory leak.
    Has anyboday seen this before? Is there any bugfix/workaround available?
    Thx in advance,
    Jens Hamisch

    We just noticed the same problem for our Swing Applet using JDK 1.4 on Solaris 8 displayed to any remote X server running on Windows 2000 or Linux. If we let the applet run long enough (the plot in the applet updated every second), we could easily use up 500-600 Mb. Again, on the local console on Solaris or Windows 2000 the memory was stable at around 70 Mb.

  • Memory leak in WLS6.1 sp3 on Solaris?

    We are running WLS 6.1 sp3 on Solaris 8 using Sun's 1.3.1 JVM with BEA's
    JDriver to connect to Oracle (8.1.7). We have set the JVM to a maximum heap
    of 512M (-Xms256m -Xmx512m).
    The issue is that we are now seeing (via pmap) the resident memory growing
    to ~1GB. Yet, the WLS management console is reporting memory usage of ~200M.
    So, if we are to believe WLS, then the JVM (or some native library) is
    chewing up the extra memory.
    Having examined the results of "pmap -x <pid>", I see the heap (and some
    anon) mem/file are quite large.

    Questions:

    - Should it be possible for pmap's value of "heap" to grow larger than the
    "Xms" setting? We have observed this recently, but the numbers above don't
    reflect this.
    - Any idea what the "anon" is or how to determine what it is?
    - Do you know of any tools that might help me determine what is using that
    memory or what is in it?
    Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated...
    Thanks in advance,

    If you set -Xmx512m then the java heap will grow no larger than 512MB.
    WLS is reporting the size of the java heap. (It is a java program after
    all and doesn't know a lot about what native code might be doing.)
    My first thought is try running with Oracle's thin (type-4) driver.
    Since this is java code, it will use the java heap. If the memory usage
    drastically changes, then you can point the finger at the jDriver.
    Are you using any other native code / libraries?

  • Memory Leak in 8.1.6.0.1 JDBC/OCI for Solaris

    Hello,
    there is a memory leak in the 8.1.6.0.1 JDBC-OCI driver for solaris.
    The leak causes your jvm to eat up all memory
    if you reuse callable statements
    (calling one statement multiple times with
    different values).
    The thin driver has no such problem. Is
    there any fix available ?

    Ok. The code spans multiple classes and
    most of it comes from a customized version
    of the Enhydra Java Application server.
    I have a class called "StandardDBConnection"
    which caches CallableStatements and is a
    wrapperclass for java.sql.DBConnection. The
    interesting method here is "prepareCall":
    * Get a callable statement given an SQL string. If the statement is
    * cached, return that statement, otherwise prepare and save in the
    * cache.
    * @param sql The SQL statement to be called.
    * @return a new CallableStatement object containing the
    * pre-compiled SQL statement.
    * @exception java.sql.SQLException If a database access error occurs
    * statement.
    public synchronized CallableStatement prepareCall(String sql)
    throws SQLException {
    PreparedStatement preparedStmt;
    logDebug ("Prepare call: " + sql);
    validate();
    preparedStmt = (PreparedStatement)preparedStmtCache.get(sql);
    // Check if the object returned by the cache really is a
    // callable statement. if it is not, someone did call first
    // prepareStatement() and now prepareCall() with the same
    // sql. Silently replace the existing cache entry by a
    // callable statement in this case.
    if (preparedStmt instanceof CallableStatement) {
    preparedStmt.clearParameters();
    else {
    // Need to close the old PreparedStatement in case we have to
    // replace it with a CallableStatement
    if (preparedStmt != null) {
    preparedStmt.close();
    else if (preparedStmtCache.size() >= maxPreparedStmts) {
    String key = (String)preparedStmtCache.keys().nextElement();
    ((PreparedStatement) preparedStmtCache.remove(key)).close();
    preparedStmt = connection.prepareCall(sql);
    preparedStmtCache.put(sql, preparedStmt);
    return (CallableStatement)preparedStmt;
    The statements get closed when I close the
    connection:
    boolean closeStmts = true;
    // Close the prepared statements.
    Enumeration e = preparedStmtCache.keys();
    while (e.hasMoreElements() && closeStmts) {
    String key = (String)e.nextElement();
    try {
    ((PreparedStatement)
    preparedStmtCache.remove(key)).close();
    } catch (SQLException except) {
    // Ignore errors, we maybe handling one.
    closeStmts = false;
    log.write(Logger.NOTICE,
    "DBConnection[" + id + "]: " + url +
    "\nUnable to close statements. Continuing....\n");
    In my classes using database queries I just
    use the prepareCall method of DBConnection
    and do not have to care about anything.
    Works perfectly with the thin driver, but
    as soon as I switch to oci... :-|

  • Memory Leak with 4.5.1/Java/Solaris

    Hi,
    We are currently running a Java Application using RMI/Weblogic 4.5.1/Solaris 5.7/Java 1.22.
    Behavior that has been observered during the day is that memory usage reaches a stage in which it begins increasing and GC doesn't recover any memory, until the heap reaches an extremly large size, then recovers a significant amount of memory.
    We have even seen the java process grab more memory than specified in the -Xmx parameter and experience a java.lang.OutOfMemory error.
    I have seen postings that describe similar issues in this newsgroup, but none that define a solution.
    This problem is intermittent, and our application can run an entire day without experiencing this memory leak. On the other hand there are days when the memory leak occurrs even when the system is idle overnight.
    Please let me know any information you have gathered on this subject.
    Regards,
    Mark Evans

    try increasing your virtual memory on your NT system...

    Hi,
    I observed the same confusing stuff in my tests. But I run weblogic 4.5.1 on Windows NT with JDK 1.2.2-w
    Usually, I would get a "Low virtual memory" message from windows
    and if I click ok & shuffle thourgh my windows I would be ok.
    But since last 2 days, I would keep the server running overnight.
    When I return in morning,
    I would find a "Low virtual memory" message and
    on clicking OK. I would find another message tell me that java.exe (which was running weblogic) crashed!!
    Now today I tried to watch the memory usage in Task Manager. And I found the most wierd thing.
    I saw that even when the system was doing virtually nothing,
    except print a string at intervals, the memory usage would go
    up steadyly.
    Even doing a forced finalization and gc did not seem to stop it.
    BUT, BY CHANCE I HAPPEN TO MINIMISE AND MAXIMISE THE WEBLOGIC
    CONSOLE OUTPUT WINDOW.
    WHAT I SAW IN THE TASK MANAGER AMAZED ME!
    THE MEMORY USAGE IN TASK MANAGER HAD GONE DOWN TO 24XXKB, WHILE
    IT WAS ABOUT 20000K OR EVEN MORE.
    This seems to support the fact that during my test, I would
    get the "low virtual memory" message and if OKed it and shuffled
    though application windows (maybe minimise, maximise the weblogic
    console output window in process), I would be able to complete
    my application. But when the message appears during night runs,
    nothing is done and by morning, when I reach to work,
    I would see that weblogic had crashed!!
    You may try that and see if it helps you.

    I had the same problem on Solaris 10 sparc. The problem seems to relate to symbolic links with
    long names not being extracted correctly from the tar file (resulting in @LongLink files popping
    up around the place). If you use the .zip source file then the build goes fine.

  • Memory leak using 10.2.0.3 OCCI client on Solaris 10

    Hi,
    We are using OCCI client libraries to connect our C++ program to the Oracle Database. The program does a lot of selects, inserts and SP calls.
    Oracle client and Oracle server both are 10.2.0.3 on Solaris 10.
    We have been observing a memory leak of 4M bytes in the C++ program every few minutes since last few days. On debugging through Purify, libumem, and Sun Studio 12, we finally managed to narrow down the problem to the Oracle client library OCI calls.

  • Detecting a memory leak in a process running on Solaris 5.7

    Hi,
    Iam running my application on solaris 5.7 platform.

    Is there any tool or in-built functionality on solaris 5.7 to detect/fix that leak.
    Thanks in advance,
    Avvaru

    Thanks for the reply. I already turned it off in both Safari and Spotlight preferences. However the problem persists. The process still runs, and from time to time it decides to leak all the memory as well. I really can't understand what the reason might be.
    To be clear, in Safari-->Preferences-->Search-->Smart search field-->"Include Spotlight Suggestions" is un-checked. In Spotlight preferences all three "Spotlight Suggestions", "Bookmarks & History" and "Bing Web Searches" are un-checked. Process still runs under Spotlight as can be seen here:
    After the last post I let it run for a while when it happened again, and below is just before i terminated it. Look at the memory usage!
