    Performance Tuning Apps 11i
    Monday, September 04, 2006
    Register for R12 upgrade
    Lot of Apps DBA's encounter performance Issues with Oracle Applications 11i . You get phone call from support team or your local helpdesk team that Users are complaining that system is running slow, you don't know where to start & what to do in this scenario . Here I am outlining overview at this minute what to ask users & what to look for ? These steps might be hepful when your 11i oracle is running slow .
    Steps mentioned below are for Apps 11i which may or may not fit in all your performance scenarios

    First as an Over view of Oracle Applications 11i check following things

    Broad Level Steps to Check
    1. Is Gather stats schedule ? ( atleast weekly ?)
    2. Is Purge Obsolete Workflow request & concurrent request purging scheduled ?
    3. Is there any runaway process on database tier or application tier ? ( runaway process is process taking unexceptionally long time with high CPU or Memory usages)
    4. Any Discoverer process taking long time or High CPU ? ( Usually on Middle tier like dis4ws..) 5. Any Custom report taking long time ?

    In order to understand problem better

    As Next level you should ask questions to yourself or person encountering performance issues like

    1. Is whole application is slow or only component of application is slow (like only Concurrent manager running slow)
    2. If this is paritular component like reports server slow then is a particular report or all reports are slow ?
    3. Is performance issue during all time or at specific time lets say from 11AM to 4PM ?
    4. Was performance issue popped up recently or performance degradation is since long ?
    5. Whats changed recently ?

    Depending on answers you can start looking into application like if issue is specific to whole applications then check
    1. If database initialization parameter is set correctly ?
    2. If application sizing is proper , server configuration is enough to accomodate all users ?

    Rest other points I will cover in tomorrow's post

    We have moved to

    kindly check in future

      1.what is Gather status shedule? to shedule purge workflow request and concurrent requests.

      Hi ,
      Thanks a lot for your feedback, I appreciate that you mentioned that you are not aware of what is gather stats or how to purge as this will help me in understanding my readers. I will explain these & how to schedule gather stats or purging once I finsih with overview of tuning/performance checks in 11i.

      Staged APPL_TOP is totally different concept used mainly during upgrade to reduce production system downtime (Please note this is different from shared APPL_TOP ) I will cover these two topics in my future posts . Keep posting comments if you don't understand or have any doubts.
