ODL (Oracle Diagnostic Logging) information is recorded for both the Essbase agent and the Essbase application server. The level of the logging that is recorded can be amended if required.
These are the 2 ODL logs for Essbase:
- EssbaseAgentODLLogger is for the Essbase agent. This writes to the ESSBASE_ODL.log in MIDDLEWARE_HOME/user_projects/epmsystem1/diagnostics/logs/Essbase/Essbase
- DefSvrLogger is for the Essbase application server (ESSSVR). This writes to the <appname>_ODL.log in MIDDLEWARE_HOME/user_projects/epmsystem1/diagnostics/logs/Essbase/Essbase/app/<appname>
The level of logging for these Essbase ODL logs is controlled by the logging.xml file.

After upgrading Essbase from the 11.1.1.x to 11.1.2.x releases, run through your sanity tests, such as outline dimension build updates, data loads, calculations, queries, etc. If you encounter any performance issues on the newer release of Essbase (for either ASO or BSO models) as compared to the previous release, rebuild the problematic outline on the current 11.1.2.x release. It is possibly that the outline did not migrate properly during the upgrade process.
Once you have rebuilt the outline, run through your tests again and if you still encounter performance issues, open an SR with Support.
