In an Oracle 10g Streams bidirectional replication environment, the capture process on one of the sites is observed to be moving very slowly. This site is also the primary database for a physical standby database. The logminer process for capture only seems to be processing about one log every 15 minutes, but once it starts processing a log, it processes it very quickly. 

Every time logminer processes a log, it is observed to be preceded by errors in the alert log similar to the following:
