Pl. check out if you have sufficient disk space on /u01

u can use the df command for this.

In your sqlnet.ora file on the server, set the following to prevent the error

On most platforms the failing function can be identified by the error message in the alert.log. The error might look like this:
  ORA-07445: exception encountered: core dump [snstimsane()+44] [SIGSEGV] [Address not mapped to object]

in which case the failing function is "snstimsane()". But on some platforms you will have to look in the tracefile for the "Call Stack Trace" and locate the first function that is not part of the error handling routines (see <Note:211909.1> for details). If the failing function is known either from the message reported in the alert.log or by looking at the call stack trace you can use the following to search for similar issues.


velu n.
sqlnet.expire_time=0 will disable dead connection detection.
There are several bugs relating to this features causing core dumps / GPFs.

It shouldnt affect your database in any way, unless you have lots of connections that are aborted (network errors, or users turning PC off etc)
