Maximum open cursors exceeded

We're seeing an oracle error in a  data center deployment with a small user base. Has anyone run into this? Is there any recommendation for the # of cursors per concurrent user that we can use as a guide so as to not just blindly increase the max limit?

ORA01000: maximum open cursors exceeded

Hello Christopher,

Referring to this thread, try increasing the number of cursors on the database and see if you still face the problem.

thanks, that's the current plan. I was hoping to gain some insight into how many to expect (ideally per concurrent user) or some design criteria to predict an optimal amount. I have recommended that we monitor their usage and increase to the smallest max we can get away with.

We have tried increasing the number of cursors and we are still facing the issue. Is this a bug in JIRA with Oracle ?
