B Optimizing Performance

This chapter assumes familiarity with the Oracle Hyperion Financial Management application, database administration, and general operating system concepts. Actual implementations and environments will vary widely based on business requirements, Financial Management data set, network topology, and hardware usage. Therefore, you must consider how to adapt these guidelines to your own implementations. All test results and performance numbers are only intended as examples to illustrate tuning concepts.


Improper settings and configurations may prevent Financial Management from working.

Before implementing any of the tuning settings, it is recommended to carry out end-to-end performance testing to obtain baseline performance data for the default configurations, make incremental changes to the tuning settings and then collect performance data. It should be verified that configuration changes improve, not impair, system performance.
