OK - here are some things that contributed to my problems and woes:

  1. we set cursor_space_for_time = false - had been set to true for some prepared statements we were running this also gave us a bonus where it fixed leaks from update across db_links and heterogeneous services (not my idea ok, I lost the fight reminder to self to get bigger boxing gloves)
  2. .net - set the dispose parameter..... release alot of resources, especially with cursors, has to do with the garbage collection there is also another parameter to adjust so connections for connection pooling don't hang on forever Apparently microsoft sets it to infinity...haven't played with it yet.
  3. The other choke, gasp, dba had alot of dbms_outputs in procedure, functions except that he moved into production instead of commenting them out. one procedure that called another function which called another function, had more than 20 of these things. And yes same person who is updating across the links.....
  4. I still have to look into the shared_pool_reserve and letting go there. I didn't want to change too many things at once... Didn't want to cause other problems.

I have some other issues to look into but this seems to have helped 80% of my problems. The other 20% well, let's just say I am encouraging him to find another position.......

Thanks to everyone for the help.
