Exadata EM 12c agent error after Upgrade to OL6 „unable to create new native thread“

cluster_patch

Recently we did some patching activity on our Exadata machines.

One part is the Upgrade of the DB Nodes which includes the upgrade to Oracle Linux 6.

This works fine but afterwards we had a problem starting our the Cloud Control agent.

We saw the following error message: „unable to create new native thread“

[oragrid@db1 ~]$ emctl start agent

Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 12c Release 5

Starting agent .................................................................... started but not ready.

[oragrid@db1 ~]$ emctl status agent

Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 12c Release 5

unable to create new native thread

[oragrid@db1 ~]$ emctl status agent

Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 12c Release 5

---------------------------------------------------------------

The problem will be fixed by the following MOS Note and action

EM 12c : Agent Restarts Due To Out Of Memory Exception “ unable to create new native thread“ Out Of System Resources (Doc ID 1499576.1)

For OEL6.x /RHEL 6.x
vi /etc/security/limits.d/90-nproc.conf

* soft nproc 1024

root soft nproc unlimited

Change TO

* soft nproc 65536

Restart the agent:

$<AGENT_INST>/bin/emctl stop agent

$<AGENT_INST>/bin/emctl start agent

 After restarting the agent everything works fine.
