I am running Oralc 8i and on Linux 6.2 . One day I shutdown the database and it freeze up 500 M of memery on OS. can someone tell me why it freezes up that much memory, what is causing it ??? and the solution to fix this so it won't allocate that much memory on the OS.

If SGA is fragmented in the memory and the database is shutdown with ABORT mode, then the system may be freezed.

Under shared memory if you see 2 or more segments for oracle, then the SGA is fragmented.
Check your /etc/system file once again. And change according to Oracle recommendation for LINUX OS.
