Issue/Introduction

After upgrading of Oracle database, AE processes consume memory without releasing.
- Oracle database was upgraded from 12.1 to 12.2
- Since then system processes (CP & WP) occupied more and more memory overtime until server's RAM is exhausted
- Upgrading AE from 12.2.1HF4 to 12.3.1 and the issue still persists.
- Another environment with original AE 12.2.1HF4 works normally.

Environment

Release : 12.3

Component : AUTOMATION ENGINE

Cause

Analysis from R&D:
- If AE core is still the same, the only change to the environment was the new Oracle version, then the cause must be an issue with Oracle client.

Resolution

Upgrade to corresponding oracle client and the issue does not appear anymore.
