Best Practices 27 .

1 Involve Right People Review appropriate documentation to gather information on upgrade process and tools required Plan to run multiple test upgrades Plan to test key features Purge or archive historical data 28 .Best Practices .

2 Use hardware that closely matches with that of Production during Test upgrade Use TUMS to eliminate tasks that are not relevant for your system Use Shared file system for Multi-node Use Distributed AD for Multi-node Estimate tablespace sizes for Test upgrade 29 .Best Practices .

Performance of some upgrade scripts can be significantly improved by doing this: db_file_multiblock_read_count (do not set -.3 Modify the following parameters for the duration of the upgrade.Best Practices .remove) db_file_optimizer_read_count (do not set – remove) job_queue_processes parallel_max_servers pga_aggregate_target sga_target log_buffer recyclebin db_block_checking 30 .

3 31 .Best Practices .0.4 Perform the following tasks in advance to reduce extended downtime: Convert to Multi Org Convert to OATM Purge workflow related tables Upgrade database to 10.2.

5 Perform the following key tasks to substantially reduce the downtime during your upgrade: Functional tasks listed in Reducing downtime section .(Appendix G) in R12 Upgrade manual 32 .(Appendix E) in R12 Upgrade manual “Upgrade by Request” section .Best Practices .

6 Gather statistics before your upgrade using Gather schema statistics concurrent program Build Master APPL_TOP from Test upgrades Record timing for each step during Test upgrade Make sure you have good backup before both the R12 and database upgrades Add PL/SQL no compile option in R12 upgrade driver to save time during upgrade Choose proper batch size and number of workers for AutoPatch during upgrade Isolate post upgrade concurrent programs to a separate manager queue 33 .Best Practices .

5.0.Recent Upgrade Experience NewGen Client Upgraded from 11.4 TB Purged close to 400 GB of temp data 1st test upgrade : 72 hrs 2nd test upgrade: 40 hrs 3rd test upgrade: 19 hrs 4th test upgrade : ?? 34 .4 Database size : 1.9 to 12.
