Listener Status Blocked again
Posted on 2008-06-15
We are running oracle DB 9.0.2 and oracle developer 6i rel2 for the application we have developed on client/server based tecnology..
the listener status is blocked once i go to the lsnrctl i get the status is blocked..once i give the reload command it sets it to ready and then the no of connections increase very rapidly...and set the connection to blocked again...for further investigation of the problem i used etheral for checking the network traffic and found that one of the client machine is making so many connections..that the listener is getting blocked.. when I close the application on the client machine and then give the reload command on the lsnrctl prompt and it sets the status back to ready...
and it works fine for some days and then the same problem happens again...
what can i do to solve this problem of mine ?
schwertner had given me a solution of turning of the firewall of the clients ..which i did and the system worked fine all these days ..but today again the same problem occured ?
anyother options that i should try..
