That does make perfect, obvious sense. Also, someone answered this in the forums with a pointer to MOS 1194229.1, which notes a memory configuration shortage can do this. I've seen memory leaks in dbconsole java processes on hp-ux that seem to add up over a couple to 6 months (and in older versions, memory fragmentation from the i/o usage by rman). dbconsole alerts me to excessive memory usage when OMS decides to do stuff _after_ unusually heavy usage of the db is over, D'Oh!
