10046/10079 Tracing understanding

RHAS 3.0/ 2 node 9.2.0.6 RAC/Web Logic front-end/JDBC thin-client connection. 

Developer is not getting response time he needs from a PL/SQL package he calls 
inside his java code. Made some sql changes to the package and it didn't 
improve the performance. The procedure within the package he's calling has 3 
input and 17 out variables defined. 

I traced all sessions (10046) and the only significant event showing up from 
the call to the package.procedure in question is SQL*Net more data to client. 
For one execution of it I was walking through there were over 170 waits for 
"more data to client". 

Each execution of this call results in multiple "more data to client" waits 
with nearly all of them being 2048 bytes in size. 

I then performed 10046 & 10079 tracing on a run to see what data was in the 
2048 byte wait events. It appears to me mostly spaces (hex 20) are being 
transmitted to the client for some reason - broken down into 2048 byte sends. 
I've included snippets of the 10046 and the 10046&10079 tracing below. I'm 
puzzled as to why Oracle is transmitting this 'empty' information back to the 
client on the package call. 

Any help understanding this would be appreciated. 

Thanks - Brian
