Huge Space Consumption by $ORACLE_HOME/.patch_storage
by Vazha Mantua Monday, November 8, 2010 12:21 PM

Hello All ,

When we applied Patchset 10.2.0.4 and some critical oracle patches, we got space problem on server.

We found large directories in solaris with command :du -ko /u0|sort -n | tail -10.

$ORACLE_HOME/.patch_storage was largest directory in oracle_home.

In .patch_storage is keeping your system up to date with Patchsets, Patch Bundles, Merge Label Requests (MLR) or Critical Patch Updates (CPU) for restore old versions.

for clearing this directory we can use MetaLink Note 550522.1
or simple: opatch util Cleanup

Rockford public storage

When I originally commented I clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service? Thanks!
