Re: Subscribe_for_node_down_event

  In brief this is all a part of the FAN framework where a listener
registers with ONS.
You shouldn't have this problem if you set
which should disable ONS subscription
If you still have an issue can you paste/send the output of
onsctl debug

I have searched the Oracle docs for this parameter, nothing is found.
Searching for listener.ora refers me to the net services guide but I am
unable to find specific syntax for this parameter, it doesn't even
appear in the index. Searching also refers me to the configuring the
listener.ora in the various clusterware guides but again, no syntax for
the parameter is given nor is it listed in the index. I'm stumped.

What we are seeing is that our application is using web logic and it
appears that after a while connections and querying start to slow down
and restarting the listener temporarily appears to resolve the issue.
Some of the notes about the warning message indicates that the listener
encountering some memory issues but I really can't find any explanations
of this anywhere.

If anyone can shed any light on this or point me to some documentation
on what this means or how to troubleshoot this problem I would be very
