Information in this document applies to any platform.

Oracle Database version:


Low performance when connecting to an 11g database as 'sys' or 'system' with SQL Developer.
Attempt to examine another user's objects (e.g. pl/sql package body)  can take a long time (between 20 seconds and 1 minute).
After the second or third try this access speeds up to less than 1 second.

This does not happen when connecting to a 10g database.
