So, it turns out my Vertex problem from yesterday wasn't just a Vertex problem. With just JDE running we are rapidly running out of database processes -- in 30 minutes from a restart we use up the 1500 that have been sufficient for the last four years. I have no idea what's causing this, it just started Monday, and all the changes we made have been put back. This is Oracle 220.127.116.11 on AIX 7.1, apps 9.0.2, tools 18.104.22.168. Any help is greatly appreciated... this is preventing work. I've opened a Sev 1 SR but haven't gotten help yet.
