Are you asking about the "established" "Time wait" and "closed" network connections. If yes then no closed or inactive connections last long for all the time. They must have been used recently by some applications and after the activity is over now they are in "time wait" or "closed" state.

They will eventually wipe off. I have not heared any where that too many closed or inactive connections affect performance.

Active connections can but not inactive.

Are you using Weblogic? Oracle Application Server? Some other middle-tier?

Check your middle-tier configuration for minimum/maximum sessions, timeout settings, etc... and tweek accordingly.

PS: As prerakg mentioned, inactive connections will only use a minimum of memory.

250 inactive connections all the time ??

Are they really inactive all the time???

did you check the last_call_et of these inactive sessions, when had they made a call successfully to database..

also check the process of the inactive sessions which you are saying.. aren't they doing consuming any i/o at operating system level, then only you can term them as inactive..

what is sql_hash_value of such sessions,might be sessions are waiting for some thing from database..

we need to check out these things first.. yes also as experts said, which application do you use...

also are all inactive sessions from the same user???

Inactive connections often mean also 'dead" connections.

The server has a maksimum number of allowed connections and when the treshhold is reached it will avoid new connections. Connections also consume RAM. Not much, but if the number of them is high, the occupied RAM grows significantly.

Go to the file SQLNET.ORA and add this line:

SQLNET.EXPIRE_TIME = 30

Every 30 minutes the server will sent probes to all clients and kill the dead connections.

Of course the other suggestions above are also valuable.
