I suggest you build into your application a little check to look at
transactions and see how long they are going. The IB_Session component in
apps has a list of all transactions for the session and you can examine the
transactions's start time. I can't remember the name of the property but it
is intuitive.

You can also use the TIB_Status dialog to simply launch a form that knows
how to exploit all the information and display it to you. It's a way of
peeking in under the hood and investigating all problems that may be taking
place in your IBO apps. If the apps are non-visual designate a log file that
suspect information can be dumped into.

IBO has a lot of mechanisms to help avoid OAT problems but there are still
measures and points of consideration you need to take. I have written much
on this in the past so please read archives, FAQ's and so on.
