Lookup Oracle ORA-600 Internal Errors

Oracle Tips by Burleson Consulting
Don Burleson

The ORA-00600 (ORA 600) error is a generic internal error from Oracle, and you must look-up the numeric arguments to understand the nature of the internal error.

A typical ORA-00600 error does not include descriptive text and might look like this, with various arguments following the message in the Oracle alert log::

ORA-00600 [723][51202][1][51200][][]

Oracle MOSC now provides Note 153788.1 to allow you to get the description for an ORA-600 error.  In this web form, we can enter the 723 argument for the ORA-600 error:

You can type-in the numeric argument for the ORA-600 message and get the a MOSC note relating to the error:

Or you can type-in the the call stack trace from the trace file that was generated from the ORA-600 trace file.

Remember, all ORA-600 errors in the alert log should be reported to Oracle Technical Support, and most Oracle DBAs open an iTAR.
