Hey boys and girls.
Oracle Version 188.8.131.52.0
OS Windoze 2000
Well, this morning I net-oped into one of my production boxes only to discover that the D:\ drive was full and we had 0 (count 'em zero) bytes free. After cursing the developers for using up the hard disk I discovered that we had a runaway trace file that was growing at about 6 gigs an hour. We killed most of the inactive session but it kept on going. The sev 1 tar with oracle yeilded nothing substancial.
Finally had to re-boot and that solved it.
I was just curious if anyone else has encountered something like this before.
