I can only speculate but it could be that the distribution of the data 
in the tables have changed to the point where the cached plans for the 
queries are no longer optimal.  See the Tuning guide about plans going 
stale and what can be done.   Restarting the application will, of 
course, generate a new plan based on the current distribution and 
perform well again.
