Here is a breakdown of the sample message: "opiodr aborting process unknown ospid (12041_1) as a result of ORA-28"

"unknown" => means it is not a background or shadow process that is killed
"ospid (28342)" => this is the OS pid of the process which opiodr is aborting
"as a result of" => this precedes the error message which is the reason for opiodr to kill the process
"ORA-28" => this is the reason that opiodr killed the process. In this case, it is ora-28.
