Due to a memory resource issue in one of the components of the Oracle Hardware Management Pack management agent service (svc:/system/sp/management) memory usage can grow over time. This is only an issue with Oracle Hardware Management Pack for Oracle Solaris 11.3 with SRU 21 through SRU 24.
As of Oracle Solaris 11.3 SRU 25 (Hardware Management Pack for Oracle Solaris version 18.104.22.168), the management agent service has been configured by default to restart each night at 3:00AM local time.
For earlier versions of Oracle Solaris S11.3, the management agent will need to be reset regularly to prevent the memory leak issue. You can create a cron job to reset the service nightly. For example, the following will reset the management agent service each night at 3:00AM local time.
Open the current crontab in the default editor to add the new job. Type:
# crontab -e
Add the following job command lines:
#The following will restart the management agent at 3:00AM local time: 0 3 * * * /usr/sbin/svcadm restart svc:/system/sp/management
Save and exit the editor.
Disabling the agent is also an option, but doing so will cause the loss of some host storage inventory in the Oracle ILOM storage pages.
