APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Attempts to delete results can fail with the following error:
    
    ORA-30036: unable to extend segment by 8 in undo tablespace
    'UNDOTBS2'
    
    The data is deleted in one operation.  This can lead to a large
    amount of storage being required in the undo tablespace to allow
    for the transaction to be aborted.
    It might not be possible to extend the undo tablespace.
    
    WORKAROUNDS:
    
    Increase the undo tablespace.
    
    OR
    
    Delete smaller amounts of data in multiple operations using less
    undo tablespace.

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * Deleting results could fail as database REDO logs filled up. *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    * Upgrade to version 9.1.0.1.                                  *
    ****************************************************************
    

Problem conclusion

  • Upgrade to version 9.1.0.1.
    The newer IntegrationTesterCmd deletes data in a series of
    smaller tasks.
    This might result in deletions taking longer, but less REDO
    space is required.
