Issue:
We have installed the Oracel 5.30 version of the probe and are using the Oracle 12.1 client connecting to 12.1 and 12.2 databases.
The server where the probe runs is consuming a lot of memory and this appears to be a memory leak associated with the probe.

We have reviewed the following document which recommends installing the 11.2.0.3 client:
https://comm.support.ca.com/kb/oracle-probe-possible-memory-leak-probe-consumes-100-mbhr-without-release/kb000004263

The problem we have is that we can't monitor 12.2 DB's from an Oracle 11 client

How do we resolve this?

 
Resolution:
The memory leak is believed to originate from the the Oracle 12.1 client.
Oracle have released client 12.2 which has a number of fixes including memory related issues.
Upgrade to the 12.2 client.
