Must be applied to the R12.1 RI file system using adpatch preinstall=y

option
Report (revised ~monthly) logistics and usage
EBS wide Report (grouped by product family) Patches categorized ( failure, failure performance performance, data fix fix, upgrade integrity ) Merge and apply R12.1 CUP1 with listed patches. Then apply merged

R12.1 Upgrade Best Practices

23

Copyright 2012, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.

How to minimize upgrade downtime ?


Reduce amount of work for production upgrade

U P T I M E

Use proven best practices for the commissioned work

Optimize upgrade for your hardware

Tune individual long runners and use special techniques

24

Copyright 2012, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.

Upgrade Best Practices


Identification of required patches

Prepare a complete list of pre and post patches and recommended code levels

Keep the system current on AD/ATG/OAM code e.g. latest AD/ATG RUPs on 11i/R12.0 and once on R12.1 Hi h priority High i it patches t h f from MOS Consolidated Upgrade Patches (CUP)

EBS R12.1 CUP1 (7303029:12.1.0) ( ) Latest pre-install patches (1448102.1)

Review Known-issues sections from key living documents such as Release notes notes, MP Install Instructions

25

Copyright 2012, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.

Upgrade Best Practices Continued..


Patch merging, sequencing and adpatch options


Use non-interactive patching Merge patches (228779 (228779.1). 1) Merge NLS patches per language language. Perform uptime maintenance when possible Hot patching g of iHelp, NLS patches, HRGLOBAL ( (1330470.1) ) Upload patch history Use adpatch options such as nomaintainmrc, phtofile, nolink, nogenform nogenrep, nogenform, nogenrep nocompile jsp, jsp noautoconfig, noautoconfig novalidate (1078973.1)

26

Copyright 2012, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.

Upgrade Best Practices Continued..


Downtime reduction procedures

Run autoconfig in parallel on a multi-node system (387859.1)

27

Copyright 2012, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.

Upgrade Best Practices Continued..


Downtime reduction procedures

Use Shared APPL_TOP (384248.1) with Distributed AD for (236469.1) upgrades and regular maintenance for multi-node instances

No need to apply the same patch on multiple tiers Distributed AD adds to the degree of parallelism by distributing AD workers across application tier nodes and improves timing for D/G portion of the patch driver.

Upgrade Best Practices Continued..


Pre-upgrade activities

Identify and execute tasks that could be completed in a separate downtime period, prior to the production upgrade

Use applicable steps mentioned in the "Downtime reduction" and Upgrade By Request appendices E and G of the R12.1 upgrade guide Upgrade RDBMS version to latest certified for the current APPS level ( 11.2.0.2 / 11.1.0.7 / 10.2.0.5 ) Convert to Oracle Applications Tablespace Model (OATM) Compacts data, optimizes storage settings and I/O Other planned HW or OS upgrades

32

Copyright 2012, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.

Upgrade Best Practices Continued..


Pre-upgrade activities continued...

Convert to Multiple Organization architecture (Document 210193.1) Drop p MRC schema ( 11.5.10 and above ) Assign post upgrade jobs to specialized CM queue (by request type, see Document 399362.1) request_type,

33

Copyright 2012, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.

Upgrade Best Practices Continued..


Pre-upgrade activities continued...

Flush all the interfaces, such as Autoinvoice, Journal entry import order import etc import, etc.. Review and disable all debug, logging at site, responsibility, user level Gather stats with GATHER_AUTO option for all schemas close to the start of downtime

38

Copyright 2012, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.

Upgrade Best Practices Continued..


Database tier configuration

Maximize SGA and PGA sizing


An upgrade only involves 10's of concurrent sessions; starting rules of thumb ...

log g buffer = 30 to 100 Mb shared pool = 1 to 4 Gb pga target = 3 to 20 Gb buffer b ff cache h = multi lti Gb Gb, b be generous without ith t causing i excessive paging or swapping

Adjust with help from AWR pool advisories

39

Copyright 2012, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.

Upgrade Best Practices Continued..


Database tier configuration

Other upgrade specific init.ora changes


If specified, remove db_file_multiblock_read_count

Maximize multiblock I/O sizes adobjcmp.sql (Phases : plb+90 and last+63) Helps with large index creation creation, stats gathering and some large upg+ phase jobs

Set job_queue_processes = # of CPUS

Set parallel_max_servers = 2 X CPUs


40

Need to test with production-like DB server and I/O subsystem Sh td Shutdown other th RAC i instances t

Copyright 2012, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.

Upgrade Best Practices Continued..


Batch size and #workers

Batch size

10K is suitable for most installs, you can test other values from 1K up to 100K if time allows Starting rule-of-thumb is between 1 and 1.5 x #COREs

# Workers

It is critical to do multiple rounds of testing, adjusting above settings to maximize server utilization, , but constrained by y factors such as

Memory utilization (no swapping/ excessive paging) CPU utilization (scale down if at 100%) I/O response times (scale down if averages > 20 ms)

41

Copyright 2012, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.

Upgrade Best Practices Continued..


Performance testing, monitoring and additional optimizations...


Analyze long runners via timing report, ad_task_timing analysis Mine ad_task_timing to identify low worker utilization due to phasing waits and review responsible culprits Review targeted g AWR Instance and SQL reports p

awrrpt.sql and awrsqrpt.sql
