I work for an extremely large corporation, would rather not say who, it's not really important. They seemed to be puzzeled so I thought I would give this a try.
We have an ordering system that uses an Oracle DB, front end accesses this db via SRM-Enterprise Buyer via a secure internet connection.
All has been well until last week accessing the db, typical connection time to create the initial order record, was approximately 15-20 seconds. Now it's about 4-5 minutes, or it times out and gives a timeout error.
