ORA-609 : opiodr aborting process unknown ospid (8327_47148946930848)

As a general error, the ORA-609 error indicates that a client connection failed to complete.  This can be an ORA-609 from an abort or killing an Oracle session.

To diagnose any error, you start by using the OERR UTILITY to display the ORA-609 error:

Example :

bash-3.2$ oerr ora 609
00609, 00000, "could not attach to incoming connection"
// *Cause:  Oracle process could not answer incoming connection
// *Action: If the situation described in the next error on the stack
// can be corrected, do so; otherwise contact Oracle Support.


The ORA-609 error is thrown when a client connection of any kind failed to complete or aborted the connection
process before the server process was completely spawned.
Beginning with 10gR2, a default value for inbound connect timeout has been set at 60 seconds.

This is also triggered, when a DB session is killed/aborted manually from the OS prompt.


Increase the values for INBOUND_CONNECT_TIMEOUT at both listener and server side sqlnet.ora file as a preventive measure.
If the problem  is due to connection timeouts, an increase in the following parameters should eliminate or reduce the occurrence of the ORA-609s.

Listener.ora: INBOUND_CONNECT_TIMEOUT_listener_name=120
