Four Enhancements for Concurrent Processing in EBS 12.1 Now Available

Steven Chan
Senior Director

We have just released four new enhancements for Concurrent Processing in E-Business Suite 12.1.3:

  1. Storage Strategies for Log and Output File Locations: Create custom storage strategies for management of large numbers of concurrent processing log and output files. Customers can specify the strategy that best suits their particular needs. These strategies are called schemes.
  2. Output File Naming Strategies: The output file naming conventions are now based on USER.REQID and REQID.OUT. The old USER format is desupported.
  3. Timed Shutdown: submit a normal, graceful shutdown and also specify a number of minutes after which an Abort command will be executed. After this number of minutes has passed, and Concurrent Processing has not yet shut down, the graceful shutdown will be converted to an Abort, and all remaining Concurrent Processing processes will be aborted.
  4. 64-bit Java Support for the Output Post-Processor Service: A 64-bit Java Virtual Machine (JVM) is now supported for the Output Post Processor (OPP). This support allows for a larger heap size to be set, compared to the 2G heap size that 32-bit Java allows. This larger heap size will decrease out-of-memory errors. Note that the 64-bit JVM can be run for the OPP service only.

Details about these four new enhancements are published here:

    3. Timed shutdown : is that similar as like we kill it manually at os level or db level.
