SDR's of Fixed Symantec Incidents:
--------------------------------
Symantec Incident : 1838034
Symptom:
	When many processes are running on the system with substing "_SID", 
	the agent will not be able to detect whether Oracle instance 
	in online or not.
Defect Description:
	With many processes running with a substring "_SID", the agent 
	when tries to come online might not be able to capture the running 
	oracle processes, due to its buffer's size limit of 4096 bytes. 
Resolution:
	Now the problem is fixed by searching for only Oracle 
	instance processes.
