Re: problems with memory

well, I suppose that there was no particular process, which consumed
most of memory. Before terminating instance we found
failed to start shared server, oer=0
found dead shared server 'S002', pid = (146, 156)
found dead shared server 'S017', pid = (289, 182)

PMON: terminating instance due to error 4031
Instance terminated by PMON, pid = 24870

so it seems the instance was in need to get some memory in shared pool,
but this memory was allocated let's say to buffer cache. Earlier we got
similar errors but to user processes, so there was not much pain, and
problem solved itself (probably ASMM was notified that there is lack of
memory in some particular pool and "moved" it from another one). This
time we had less luck.

well, as I mentioned, our database is OLTP, so with more turbulent
requirements for memory in different pools - that is why I suppose ASMM
doesn't work well

Charles sent some tips on metalink notes on details to this issue, so I
would "deep" into it.
