RE: Client performance

 To All,

        I asked this question some time ago & got a handful of replies
all of which were useful.  The issue has now been resolved & I thought
I'd update the group on what fixed this since it was a real oddball.
After sending the trace files to Oracle they did their analysis & stated
that they could not find anything wrong.  They then suggested that we
try the query again, but after starting it minimize the application
window & then restore it.  If the result set was done we should
investigate the video drivers.  Odd as that may seem, that was the
problem.  The NT folks have replaced the video card & Microsoft supplied
driver & things run just dandy now.

Hi Dick,
Probably the best would be to enable net8 tracing on client site adding
following lines into sqlnet.ora

TRACE_LEVEL_CLIENT = 16
TRACE_FILE_CLIENT = CLI
TRACE_DIRECTORY_CLIENT = c:\temp
TRACE_UNIQUE_CLIENT = ON
TRACE_TIMESTAMP_CLIENT = ON
TNSPING.TRACE_LEVEL = 16

try first only tnsping to see what it produces.
