Request to Change the design of powerHA Smart assit for Oracle which depends on /tmp fs to setup temp files to elsewhere
Customer wants to change the design code of powerHA smart assist for oracle which depends on /tmp fs to setup temp files to elsewhere. Customer had regular outages in recent days due to /tmp fs getting full since any (non-previleged) user/Application user can fill /tmp filesystem. In such conditions "smart assist for Oracle" is unable to create temp files in /tmp which leads to failure of Application monitoring.
From the powerHA script /usr/es/sbin/cluster/sa/oracle/sbin/DBUtilities We can see that powerHA is relying on /tmp fs as below. typeset loadfile=/tmp/sqlplus.load.$$ typeset rc_file=/tmp/sqlplus.result.$$ typeset envfile=/tmp/sqlplus.env.$$ loadfile=/tmp/sqlplus.load.$$ rc_file=/tmp/sqlplus.result.$$ typeset envfile=/tmp/sqlplus.env.$$ loadfile=/tmp/sqlplus.load.$$ rc_file=/tmp/sqlplus.result.$$ typeset loadfile=/tmp/sqlplus.load.$$ typeset rc_file=/tmp/sqlplus.result.$$
We had already opened "PMR: 01385,832,832" where IBM labs suggested to create a RFE for above problem.
Customer wants IBM to change the "powerHA Smart assist for Oracle" depending on /tmp fs to setup temp files to elsewhere./tmp filesystem can be filled by any non previliged user and that should not lead to the downtime of Application/Database.
Please be noted that Customer raised concern that they do not see issues when /tmp fs is full with Veritas Cluster Manger used for High Availablity for Oracle.
