Answer: They are specific objects like files, cell notes or URL's associated with specific data cells of Essbase database. You can link multiple objects to a single data cell. These linked objects are stored in the server. These LRO's can be exported or imported with the database for backup and migtarion activities. Que:2 What are the specified roles other than Aministrator to view sessions, disconnect sessions or kill users requests for a particular application? Answer: You should have the role of Application manager for the specified application. Que:3 What are the three options specified in Username and Password management under security tab in Essbase server proprties. Answer: 1. Login attempts allowed before username is disabled. 2. Number of inactive days before username is diabled. 3. Number of days before user must change password. Que:4 Why do objects gets locked and when does this happens? Answer: Objects gets locked to prevent users to make simultaneous and conflicting changes to Essbase database objects. By default whenever an object is accessed through Aministrative services console or Excel spreadsheet add-in, it gets locked. Que: 5 I have created an application with one database in Essbase at test environment and now needs to copy the entire application with all security permissions to the production server which is not connected to the test server. How can I do that? Answer: You can acheive this using migration wizard to migrate an application to a text file which you can take physically to the production server. To know how you can do that, take a look at this post Essbase Application Migration. Que:6 From the above question, When I migrated the application to the production server I do not see any data in the Essbase database. What has gone wrong and how to correct this? Answer: Nothing has gone wrong. Migration utility does not migrate the actual data. If you want to copy the exact data from the test machine, get it exported using export utility and import it on production machine. Que:7 Referring to the above question, Can I still do this if my production server and test server are two different operation systems. Explain. Answer: While exporting the database, you can write the database data to an ASCII text file which enables you to load data on different platforms. Que:8 How can we backup an aggregate storage database? Answer: To back up an aggregate storage database, copy the application directory ARBORPATH/app/appname. Que:9 How does Essbase recover from a database crash? Answer: After a database crash or server interruption, Essbase automatically recovers a database after rolling back the transactions that were active at that time. Que:10 How can you make a Max L script run at a specified time? Answer: MaxL scripts can be called from a BAT file which is used for scheduling.
both are different and has different usage. Que 2: Can we build dimensions directly from data sources without using rule files. Ans: UDA represents the class of the members. If we have large number of dimensions(generally more than 10) 2. Attribute dim. count. 2. Que 8: What is UDA( user defined attributes). Now the question arises what is the use of calling them dense or sparse. Que 6: Suppose we have assigned Generation 2 and Generation 4 as of now and think of adding generation 3 later some time.1. Que 11: What is the difference between UDA's and Attribute dimensions? Ans : Attribute dimensions provides more flexibility than UDA's. Que 10: How does UDA's impact database size? Ans: Absolutely no impact as UDA's do not require additional storage space. We can write back hence much suited for planning applications. Que 3: When do we generally use build rules files? Ans: To automate the process of creating dimensions with thousands of members. I heard recently that ASO will also have the writeback capability. max and avg are automatically created for the attribute dimensions and are calculate dynamically. Generation references 2.No Impact as they do not perform any inherent calculations. But now instead of period. cities) will have some sales value for a particular month or quarter. Ans: No. we can do that but it is recommended to use seperate rule file for each dimension. Here we also need to understand what are these dense and sparse members. Ans: Yes.Que 1: What are the two storage options available in Essbase and what are the differences? Ans: ASO( Aggregate Storage Option) . Most of the dimensions are sparse 3. we must assign gen 3. How are they different than Aliases.No Impact as they perform only dynamic calculations. Hence we can say that our period dimensions would be dense. level references 3. Aliases are just another names of the members.Used for 1. Ans: We cannot define that as Generation 1 is not valid. Que 9: Can we query a member for its UDA in a calculation script. Generally maximum regions(countries. . We cannot write back in ASO. I don't remember. Ans: No. Say for example we have two dimensions period(Month or quarter) and region and we are calculation the sales amount. Que 5: In what case we can define generation 1 to a feild in generation build method. Parent-Child references. Que 12: How does Attribute dimensions and UDA's impact batch calculation performance? Ans: UDA's. You can query a member for its UDA in a calculation script. Do some research and try to find the answer. When the intersections or cells of two dimensions mostly contains a value it is dense. BSO (Block Storage Option). min. Financial applications are generally dense structures and normal analytical cubes are sparse. Que 7: Can we create more than 2 dimensions using only one build rule file. consider another dimension products. Now there are some products which are sold in only some particular regions hence for them there will be no values in other regions or will have very low percentage of data values hence the structure will become sparse. What difference does it make. If gen 2 and gen 4 exists. Ans: Yes. Can we build the dimension. Que 4: What are the three primary build methods for building dimensions? Ans: 1. Que 13: How can we display UDA's in reports? How do they impact report report performance. Attribute calculations dimensions which include five members with the default names sum. Dimensions are less and dense(recommended values for no of dim are between 4 and 8) .
When an application is started.CSC Que 20: What is the role of provider services. Que 24: How can I migrate an application from my test environment to the production environment. Hence if the application is ASO. Que 22: Can we start and stop an application individually. Ans: Thw record will be rejected. Que 15: While loading the data. For very large number of att dim displayed in the report. why. rule file and a calc script. If yes. Ans 18. Que 14: How does Attribute dim impact report performance? Ans: They highly impact the report performance as the attributes are calculated dynamically when referenced in the report. We can manage our server resources by starting only the applications which receive heavy user traffic. the answers to other two questions are Yes. We can have multiple instances of an Essbase server on a single machine and there will be dfferent sets of windows services for all these instances. Ans: Using (~) exclude from consolidation operator. But only one database per application is recommended. How ca this be used to increase performance. Can we change it later to non-unicode mode. Que 27: What does never consolidate operator(^) do? Ans: It prevents members from being consolidate across any dimension. how and If No. the performance could drastically reduce.Ans: UDA's values are never displayed in the reports and hence do not impact report performance. No. we have Essbase studio. how can I do this. the databases it contains will be that type only. Also can I still do it if my test env and prod env versions are different. Que 18: Can we have one ASO database and one BSO database in one single application. Ans: To communicate between Essbase and Microsoft office tools. . Ans: Yes. database objects are migrated and no data is transferred. Que 25: A customer wants to run two instances of an Essbase server on a same machine to have both test env and Development env on the same server. Que: 26 suppose I have a dimension A with members B and C and I do not want B and C to roll up to A. Because we define ASO or BSO option while creating the appication and not database.OTL. Answer: Integration services and in version 11. Que 23: We have created an application as unicode mode. Que 17: Can we have multiple databases in one single application? Ans: Yes. Ans: No. Ans: .RUL and . you have applied both the selection criteria as well as rejection criteria to a same record. Can I still do this if my test environment is a windows one and my production env is UNIX one. Que 19: What are the file extensions for an outline. rule file and load data. all associated atabases are brought to the memory. What will be the outcome. Que 21: What is an alternative to create metaoutline. Can he do that? Ans: Yes. Ans: Hyperion Administrative services console provides a migration utility to do this but onluy the application. . Que 16: How is data stored in the Essbase database? Ans: Essbase is an file based database where the data is stored in PAG files of 2 GB each and grows sequentially.
Now they have added two more dimensions in the existing cube and the performance becomes very very slow. Linked partition. Ans: No. Que 32: On what basis you will decide to invoke a serial or parellel calculation method.Que 28: Can we have multiple metaoutlines based on one OLAP model in Integration services? Ans: Yes Que 29: Can we have an metaoutline based on two different OLAp models. Que 36: A customer has a cube with 13 dimensions and the performance was fine. Question:How you generally Approach to ur Analytics Project? Answer: Any project should start from defining the scope of the project and the approach should be not to deviate from the scope. Technical leads discuss all this with the developers and try to close requirements. The functional leads then decide on majorly three things: 1. Sometimes it is necessary to perform top-down calculation to get the correct calculation results. They had a discussion with the technical leads and try to reach a solution. please post your answer. Que 30: What is hybrid analysis? Ans: Lower level members and associated data remains in relational database where as upper level members and associated data resides in Essbase database. Ans: Even I dont have any clue. Ans: If we have a single processor. why do we use them. . Simultaneously testing and deployment is planned in a phased manner. As dynamic calc members are calculated when requested. Replicated partition. If you can throw some light on this. 2. 3. 2. Que 31: Why top-down calculation less efficient than a bottom-up calculation?Being less efficient. Transparent partition 3. I experienced this few days back with a customer. we will use serial calculation but if we have multiple processors we can break the task into threads and make them run on different processors. Customer said logically nothing wrong with the two new dimensions they have added. Que 35: Dynamic calc decreases the retreival time and increases batch database calculation time. How true is the statement? Ans: The statement should be just opposite. What could be the reason for slowdown. Que 34: What are the types of partitioning options available in Essbase? Ans: 1. Que 33: What is block locking system? Ans: Analytic services(or Essbase Services) locks the block and all other blocks which contain the childs of that block while calculating this block is block locking system. According to the defined scope of the project they start gathering requirements while interacting with the clients. Then the project should be functionally divided into smaller modules generally done by project managers alongwith technical and functional leads. the retreival time should increase. Ans: In the process it calculates more blocks than is necessary. Technical leads decides what schemas to create and what requirements are going to fulfill by that schema.
Clients try to match the data with their existing reports and you never get the correct results.Oracle BI server converts the logical SQL submitted by the client into optimised physical SQL which is then sent to the backend database. production. I have experienced that if you are not able to create the report in exactly the way they used to see. Question: How analytics Process Your Request When you Create your Requests. processes the requests. Hence you may not agree to my answers. 2. 1. Please raise your voice. the answer is. again converting the results received from the database into user presentable form etc. I will simply first divide the schemas on the basis of functional areas of an Organisation which are similar to the modules in an ERP like sales. If I have not understood the question. If you ask me to blindly create schemas for the warehouse without knowing any requirements. Answer: If the Question means how does Oracle BI Analytics Server processes the user requests. HR etc. Mostly clients do not have correct data in their database and on top of that to correct the results they make some changes at the report level to bring the desired result which you may not e aware of while creating the reports. I will broadly describe the expected analysis an organisation would like to do in every module. There could be two reasons for report not fetching the right data. breaking the request into threads(as Oracle BI is a multi threaded server). Question: From where u Get the Logical Query of your Request? Answer: The logical SQL generated by the server can be viewed in BI Answers. There are more questions which I will try to answer later.Question: How we are going to decide which schema we are going to implement in the data warehouse? Answer: One way is what is mentioned in Question above. To move ahead. manages the cached results. inventory. Question: What are the Challenges You Faced while making of Reports? Answer: Making of an report has never been a difficult task. checking and verifying credentials. Your approach should be to first show them what they want to see and then add more information in the report. study the data and business and you can create few more schemas. I think this way you would be able to complete at least 40-50 % of the requirements. they will keep asking for the changes. there there could be a problem with the joins and relations in the schema. You need to discover that analysing and digging deep into the matter. Hence always consult the SPOC(Single Point of Contact) and try to understand the logic they have used to generate their reports. Question: What you will do when your Report is not Fetching Right Data? Answer: this is the biggest problem in report creation and verification. you try to discover the things and at later stage come to know of all these problems and you are held responsible for this delay. But problem comes when users are reluctant to adopt a new system. . If the database values are correct. but wherever please post a comment and let me know too. purchase. finance. The questions are very specific to OBIEE and I dont have much experience in that. Also in between it performs various tasks like converting the user operations like user selections to form a logical SQL.
Question: How to hide Certain Columns From a User? Answer: Application access level security. Question: What is Guided Navigation? Answer: I think it is just the arrangement of hyperlinks to guide the user to navigate between the reports to do the analysis. There are lot of problems with the date formats also. Do not add the column in the presentation layer. Hyperion IR has a drill anywhere feature where dont have to define and can drill to any available column. By default it is inner join but sometimes the requirement demands other types of joins. Th type of join made need to be checked. Question: What are Global Filter and how thery differ From Column Filter? Answer: Column filter. Question:How can we Enable Drills in a Given Column Data? Answer: To enable Drill down for a column.Not sure. Question: Is Drill Down Possible without the attribute being a Part of a Hierarchical Dimension? Answer: No Question: How do u Conditional Format.? Answer: while creating a chat in BI Answers. I heard of global variables but not global filters. Global filter. you can define the conditions and can apply colour formatting. it should be included in the hirarchy in OBIEE.Question: Major Challenges You Faced While Creating the RPD?????? Answer: Every now and then there are problems with the database connections but the problem while creating the repository RPD files comes with complex schemas made on OLTP systems consisting of lot of joins and checking the results. .simply a filter applied on a column which we can use to restrict our column values while pulling the data or in charts to see the related content. How to make the Delivery Profilers Work? When we are Use SA System how Does SA Server understand that It needs to use it For Getting the User Profile information? Where to Configure the Scheduler? Answer: I am not sure if Iam correct but we configure the OBIEE schedular in database. I understand this filter will have impact on across the application but I really dont understand where and how it can be user.Do not add the column in the report.
.You can make changes in the RPD file and push in changes which will be immediately visible to the users who are already connected. Question: Online/Offline Mode how it Impact in Dev and Delpoyment???? Answer: Online Mode.How is Webcat File Deployed Across Environment? Question: How the users Created Differs From RPD/Answers/Dashboards Level????? Answer: RPD users can do administrator tasks like adding new data source. edit those charts and Dashboard users may only view and analyse the dashboard or can edit dashboard by adding/removing charts objects. This feature we may use in production environment. change column names where as Answers users may create new charts. Offline mode.can be useful in test or development environment. create hirarchies.
