Bug 6918493 – Net DCD (sqlnet.expire_time>0) can cause OS level mutex hang, possible to get PMON failed to acquired latch

Using Net dead connection detection (DCD) by setting SQLNET.EXPIRE_TIME > 0 in the SQLNET.ORA file can cause an OS level mutex hang under nsexptim -> … -> localtime_r .. and possibly under other substacks under nsexptim . The hang is very intermittent in nature as it depends on a specific timing scenario.

If the hung process is holding a critical resource, such as a latch, then this can lead to a wider hang scenario.

Rediscovery Notes:
Dead Connection Detection is enabled (SQLNET.EXPIRE_TIME > 0 )
The stack includes nsexptim and is likely to include
localtime_tz_r or localtime_r
The top of the stack shows the session blocked on an
OS mutex. (eg: In __lll_mutex_lock_wait on Linux, or in a
futex call)
If the hung process holds a latch, or other critical
resource, then PMON may give a clue in its tracefile.

Workaround:
Disable DCD and configure OS level keepalive instead.
eg: Set SQLNET.EXPIRE_TIME=0 in the SQLNET.ORA file
and configure TCP keepalive to the required timeouts
at OS level (exact parameters and steps vary between
platforms as TCP keepalive is an OS level configuration)
