We host an internal company website and have been using Alpha for a few years now. Recently I created a UX component with a List component that connects to a view in an Oracle database. I'm using this to display the data being collected from our ERP system to present "Live" data from our manufacturing equipment.

I accomplish the "Live" data by utilizing the Has onTimer event and set the interval to 5 seconds. In the onTimer event in the Client-side events list, I call
Most of the time there is no issue, but occasionally it will show an error

Could not connect to database.
Database API specific error

Your database has returned the following error code and description to Alpha Five.
Consult your database documentation for further information.

12170 - 'ORA-12170: TNS:Connect timeout occurred'

I can infer the timeout issue, but I don't see where I need to make an adjustment, if one can be made, to nullify the issue. The list usually comes up shortly after the error is displayed.

Am I pushing too hard with the 5 second interval? Has anybody else experienced a similar issue?
