Recently our standby database lost connection to the production server because of connectivity issues. When the log switch occurred there was a degradation of the service. Applications hosted on the database experienced stalling. Any ideas on what may be the issue?

Run in "maximum performances" or "maximum availability" mode and not in "maximum protection" one.

So you have to post more details.
Here we have no information to diagnose.

First have a look at primary alert.log to see any message during the mentioned period.
Then you can query V$DATAGUARD_STATUS to see the messages related to replication.

Michel,

Sorry about the late response was away from work for a bit. I encountered the following errors in my alert log when the connection to the standby database was lost. Hope it helps

ARC0: Attempting destination LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST_2 network reconnect (1041)
ARC0: Destination LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST_2 network reconnect abandoned
PING[ARC0]: Error 1041 when pinging standby standby_database
LGWR: I/O error 3135 archiving log 2 to 'standby_database'

LNS: Closing remote archive destination LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST_2: 'standby_database' (error 3135)

Thanks

This issue can't be that important or serious if it existed unresolved for 6 weeks

ORA-01041: internal error. hostdef extension doesn't exist
 *Cause: Pointer to hstdef extension in hstdef is null.
 *Action: Report as a bug
ORA-03135: connection lost contact
 *Cause:  1) Server unexpectedly terminated or was forced to terminate.
          2) Server timed out the connection.
 *Action: 1) Check if the server session was terminated.
          2) Check if the timeout parameters are set properly in sqlnet.ora.

Verify LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST_2 value and there is no firewall on your standby database server.

Michel,

I have verified that there is no firewall between the two servers and the LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST_2, once the two machines can see each other all is well but once there is a loss in connection the production database will encounter a performance hit.

So change the value of LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST_2 to handle this case: NET_TIMEOUT, REOPEN, MAX_FAILURE parameters.
