Errors in file /u01/app/oracle/diag/rdbms/avdb/AVDB/trace/AVDB_m001_15639.trc (incident=124393):

The database will have memory shortage issues that render it basically unusable. These memory errors may also show as ORA-04030:
Fri Jun 29 10:28:36 2018 Unable to allocate memory for new incident error in file /u01/app/oracle/diag/rdbms/avdb/AVDB/trace/AVDB_m001_12644.trc: ORA-04030: out of process memory when trying to allocate 88 bytes (top call heap,kxsphpp)
The database will suffer from severe performance issues.
|Cause||The upgrade to SP4 can introduce this issue depending on what kernel level is involved.|
|Resolution||If you are encountering performance issues and constant and immediate ORA-00600, ORA-07445 and ORA-04030 memory errors right from the database startup after installing SP4, please refer to SUSE Support as this is not an RSA Identity Governance & Lifecycle product-related issue.|
Article 7023167 Database Errors with Kernel 3.0.101-108.57 and 3.0.101-108.60 from SUSE explains the issue with SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 Service Pack 4 (SLES 11 SP4).
Note that in our experience, this may not be restricted to the above mentioned kernel levels.
If you encounter ORA-00600 and ORA-07445 errors on your Soft Appliance database that are NOT related to a SUSE upgrade, please contact RSA Customer Support and open a case.
|Workaround||Follow SUSE's advice in this matter.|
