About Essbase Server Connections and Ports

The number of ports available for an Essbase Server represents the number of licensed concurrent connections. Essbase provides one reserve port for the system administrator. A system administrator uses the reserve port to log out one or more users when all other ports are in use. See Running Essbase Servers, Applications, and Databases.

In Administration Services, a port is in use only when an Essbase Server connection is established. See “About Essbase Connections and Ports” in the Oracle Essbase Administration Services Online Help.
