As you have upgraded ODA from to, There is a major change in the OS as well as kernel version which is 2.6.39-400 to 4.1.12-61.

This issue faced mainly due to OS memory fragmentation. If you clear the OS cache or reboot the server – as fragmentation is gone – You are not going to see this issue.

This is nothing related to RDBMS. This is related to OS level Memory page allocation to processes.



Please refer to the below MOS doc to fix this issue,
