Resolution :


In the server, /dev/shm is 1.8G

[root@sbstandby ~]# df -h /dev/shm
Filesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
tmpfs           1.8G   16K  1.8G   1% /dev/shm

Unmounted and remounted tmpfs.

[root@sbstandby ~]# mount -t tmpfs shmfs -o size=8192m /dev/shm
[root@sbstandby ~]# 

[root@sbstandby ~]# df -h /dev/shm
Filesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
shmfs           8.0G     0  8.0G   0% /dev/shm

Let's restart ASM now.


[oracle@sbstandby ~]$ srvctl status asm
ASM is not running.
[oracle@sbstandby ~]$ srvctl start asm
[oracle@sbstandby ~]$ srvctl status asm
ASM is running on sbstandby

Issue fixed.


Cause :


The Automatic Memory Management functionality uses /dev/shm on Linux for SGA and PGA management. The errors occur if either MEMORY_TARGET or MEMORY_MAX_TARGET is configured larger than the configured /dev/shm size, or if /dev/shm is mounted incorrectly.
