I have been unable to resolve a stubborn, unpredictable problem, with
one node
in a 2 node RAC system( experiencing unexplained heavy loads.

The problem surfaced after this system ran with no problems for 3

The "hanging" node will prevent further session creation although
OS processes and oracle sessions continue.

My other node works nornally so databsae access is uninterrupted.

I am running Red Hat AS 3 and I have experienced the problem with
2.4.21-27 and 2.4.21-32.

The servers are two Dell 1850s.

We are also using an Network Appliance filer NAS
and Cluster Manager.

There are no cron jobs running at that time that would cause the

Nothing that would suggest a cause has been seen in the OS's messages
file or Oracle logs file. Producing an RDA snapshots does not show

I have an open TAR with Oracle about this problem with no resolution
them yet.

If anyone else has seen this behavior I would like to know what your

ran perfectly for 3 months makes me suspect that that is not the case.
