What sort of profile would you recommend for an Oracle user that is manifested through a RESTful API; particularly where there will be a lot of asynchronous requests? So we're talking about a potentially large number of simultaneous connections, with a requirement for low latency, but returning relatively short snippets of data.

Not sure what you mean here. Can you expand? Oracle tuning isn't done per-user. – Phil Dec 4 '12 at 6:37
@Phil Good point -- I'm not an expert and that escaped me! I guess, in that case, latency is a function of the schema. (This isn't something I have control over, as it's third party.) However, I was just wondering if there were any tweaks that could be done to a user profile that are conducive to, particularly, a lot of concurrent connections, such that other users aren't overly affected? – Xophmeister Dec 4 '12 at 9:54
