Applies to:

Oracle Net Services - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
Requires idle connection.
Reproduces from till 19.12 where the fix is included.
Requires USE_NS_PROBES_FOR_DCD=TRUE to be set in the server side SQLNET.ORA file


Issue typically presents as a slow performing or hang on a pre existing connection.
Issue initially reported as a connection waiting 10 minutes to continue after having been idle for 24 hours.
The connection and tracing will indicate that a large idle time was spent before the hang takes place.
The other major requirement is DCD being turned on and the USE_NS_PROBES_FOR_DCD to be set to true on the database side SQLNET.ORA file.


 Begins in 12.1 and fixed in 19.12
