Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: RH Enterprise Linux, Memory Caching

Posted by Andrew Piskorski on
Samer opened bug 861153 on SourceForge about this. Tentative conclusion there is that this is probably due to the previously discussed massive memory leaks in certain versions of Oracle's OCI client libraries. If so, then this problem has nothing to do with OpenACS or AOLserver per-se, it is Oracle's bug. Best solution is to either patch or upgrade Oracle's client libraries, but if that's not feasible, it might also be possible to work around the issue by changing the AOLserver Oracle driver to use different OCI calls which may trigger fewer memory leaks.
