Re: Resource Manager bug in

Tim Gorman


Re: Resource Manager bug in I’m not suggesting that the system be quiesced.  I’m just suggesting that, for the session which issues the ALTER SYSTEM, commit or rollback any in-flight transactions first.

I don’t feel that it’s unreasonable for an in-flight transaction to fail when an ALTER SYSTEM is executed in its midst.  Yes, an ORA-00600 is considered a bug, but chances are good that the “fix” will be to assign a valid Oracle error to the condition anyway...

Not to mention, ORA-00600 is, by definition, a bug.

Fair point Tim, but  it should not be the case that you need a quiescent system before changing  plans.

On many systems that  situation is almost impossible to achieve

Wouldn’t it make more  sense to complete the transaction before using ALTER SYSTEM?  Does the  error reproduce when you do that?

Wondering if anyone has  experienced the following bug in Res Mgr (we
are running on AIX  4.3.3).   We have a TAR in for this, but  
our experience is that tech  support is completely hapless when it  
comes to Res Mgr  issues.

The error occurs when we  switch plans while users have ongoing uncommitted
transactions,   their session will terminate with an ORA-600: internal
error code,  arguments: [kgskdecrstat1] when they issue a COMMIT.      
We had planned on implementing Res Mgr in our prod  databases for various
reasons, with a need to switch plans, so this is a  big show-stopper.

I can recreate the error in  every database with something like the  

SQL> create table xyz as  select * from dba_objects where 1=2;  

Table  created.

SQL> insert into xyz  select * from dba_objects where owner = 'SYS';  

12561 rows  created.

SQL> alter system set  resource_manager_plan = '';

System  altered.

SQL> alter system set  resource_manager_plan = 'ES_RM_PLAN';  

System  altered.

SQL>  commit;
ERROR at line  1:
ORA-00603: ORACLE server  session terminated by fatal error
