A few things to check - make sure you don't have otrace turned on, or any tracing turned on in your sqlnet.ora, no login triggers and no major processing in your login.sql file. Regards, Brandon -----Original Message----- From: oracle-l-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:oracle-l-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx]On Behalf Of Magnus Andersen Sent: Tuesday, July 19, 2005 7:08 AM To: Oracle-L (E-mail) Subject: Slow connection to 126.96.36.199 database. Hi All, I'm running Oracle 188.8.131.52 on RedHat Linux 3 AS. I'm seeing slow connection times to the database from remote clients such as our web-server. I can tnsping the listener in around 10-20 msecs, but when I try to login in it takes a minimum of 2 seconds. Sometimes over 20. I'm archiving my listener log every night to make sure that it doesn't become huge. I have seen this same behavior with the listener log large. Any Help Appreciated.
