I agree with Mladen Gogala, How many concurrent users are accessing your database when your performance problem starts?. What is the size of your SGA?, Total RAM on your server?

Remember that (depending on the size of the sga) each process created on the database can consume ~20Mb of memory. So, if you have 200 concurrent users, make sure that you have at least 4 GB of free memory after starting your instance, otherwise you will experience performance problems as more users connect.
