HFM Housekeeping in Oracle Hyperion (EPM) 11.1.2.4: PART-2

Hello Friends!

This is PART-2 of our 'Oracle Hyperion Financial Management (HFM) Housekeeping' blog series. If you haven't read PART-1, I would suggest you to first go through that post to have a clear understanding of this PART-2.

In PART-1, we had covered stopping Oracle Hyperion Financial Management (HFM) services and processes, killing HFM database sessions, housekeeping of HFM schema tables, etc.

Now we will see Oracle Hyperion Financial Management (HFM) logs archiving, deleting HFM temp and cache files, etc. activities as part of Oracle Hyperion Financial Management (HFM) Housekeeping.

NOTE: 
  • This post has been written and associated activities have been demonstrated on Oracle Hyperion Financial Management (HFM) version 11.1.2.4.204.
  • The demonstrating Hyperion environment has Oracle database server 12.2.0.2 (18c) as backend database. 
Oracle Hyperion Financial Management (HFM) logs archiving

To have good Hyperion Financial Management (HFM) application performance, it's recommended to archive HFM application logs on a regular basis as if it's not done on time it keeps growing and can consume your server's resources apart from downgrading your application performance.

1- Login to all your Hyperion Financial Management (HFM) application servers and perform below steps on each one of them.

2- Goto the path E:\apps\Oracle\Middleware\user_projects\epmsystem_hfm\diagnostics\logs\hfm

3- In the above folder, you will find the following log files:
  • xfm.odl.<APPLICATION_NAME>.log
  • oracle-epm-fm-hsx-server.log
  • oracle-epm-fm-bi-publisher.log
  • oracle-epm-fm-hsx-registry.log
  • oracle-epm-fm-lcm-client.log
  • SharedServices_Security.log

4- Archive all the LOG files under \hfm folder by zipping them to a separate backup folder. 

5- Now goto the path E:\apps\OracleEPM\Middleware\user_projects\domains\EPMSystem\servers\HFMWeb0\logs

This completes the Hyperion Financial Management (HFM) logs archiving part. 

Deleting Oracle Hyperion Financial Management (HFM) temp and cache files

Note: The purpose to include 'deleting tmp and cache folders on Hyperion Financial Management (HFM) app servers' is that it should be done once in a quarter or probably once in a 6 months period (not weekly/monthly) like truncation of HFM DATA_AUDIT, TASK_AUDIT, HFM_ERRORLOG tables or do it when you need to troubleshoot any particular technical issue where Oracle recommends to perform it. Deleting tmp and cache folders is mainly required during issues in Hyperion Financial Management (HFM) Web pages/interfaces or after Hyperion Financial Management (HFM) patching. On some occasions where frequent and intense data loads are running from FDMEE to HFM apps, it has been observed that truncating overgrown HFM audit and data tables along with clearing tmp and cache folders have worked as a temporary fix to resolve the issue like data is not getting loaded into Hyperion Financial Management (HFM) applications even though FDMEE DLR is getting successfully completed. 

Tmp folder on Hyperion Financial Management (HFM) application managed server is used to store temporary files related to your HFM applications. A cache is a set of temporary files used by HFM application server. 

Oracle recommends that users should periodically clear the tmp and cache directories to help your system run faster and reclaim disk space. Without damaging your applications, you can delete tmp and cache easily.

1- Login to all your Hyperion Financial Management (HFM) application servers and perform the below tasks.

2- Goto path E:\apps\OracleEPM\Middleware\user_projects\domains\EPMSystem\servers\HFMWeb0

3- Rename tmp and cache folders as shown below:

Note: Make sure you keep clearing these backup folders on every next Housekeeping activity. 

Rebooting Oracle Hyperion Financial Management (HFM) Application servers

Rebooting Hyperion Financial Management (HFM) application servers are important in order to clear locking, blocking, hanged, orphan processes/sessions running at the Operating system level. Sometimes these sessions can cause interruptions in HFM application normal functioning. 

Login to all your Hyperion Financial Management (HFM) application servers and reboot them. 

Note: It's also recommended to regularly monitor Hyperion Financial Management (HFM) application servers' space and especially memory utilization. 

Starting Oracle Hyperion Financial Management (HFM) application services

Once you complete all of the above tasks, you can go ahead and start HFM services on all Hyperion Financial Management (HFM) application servers.

Now login to Workspace and open your Hyperion Financial Management (HFM) applications and thoroughly validate them ensuring everything is working fine.

This completes your Hyperion Financial Management (HFM) Housekeeping process.

That's all for this post.

  1. But, if you don’t thoughts having the smaller construct volume, and instead prefer the enclosed construct chamber to higher print supplies like ABS and Nylon, then go for the Shower Curtains for Bathroom Flashforge Creator Pro 2. We additionally printed some nice plant pots for some flowers and a cactus utilizing the Copy Mode function, with every extruder printing a plant pot concurrently for double the productiveness. When compared with the Anycubic Mono X , they have similar 4K screens and resolutions, with the Saturn S having a 4mm bigger X-axis, and the Mono X with a 35mm bigger Z-height.
