The OS noted that a process "oracle" with pid 29286 crashed (segmentation 
fault). Not much more can be learned from only this. Can be an application 
bug or pretty near anything else (segfault is essentially memory corruption, 
but most commonly due to code bugs).

Turn to application level logs after ruling out hardware (which you seem to 
have done).
