Pnnn are parallel query slaves, Oracle tried to start some but could not due to OS error 20. Check your OS log and cross-check what events are logged at that time (/var/syslog, or wherever your flavour of *nix happens to have it)

There are many reasons for that.
Check the alert log files for detail explanation.
Check the available RAM and disk space.

It relates to parallel Query option. It may be due to the fact that, you have configured your server for parallel server, but there are not enough servers (processors ) that you want to use. For example, in your machine, you have only two processors... but in your queries you are trying to use more than 2 processors using PARALLEL_MAX_SERVERS parameter.

Please check the No. of processors in your machine and value of PARALLEL_MAX_SERVERS parameter.
