Specify a Binding Host Name to have Essbase bind only to the IP address for the specified Binding Host Name. Otherwise, at startup, Essbase binds on all available IP addresses.
In EPM 22.214.171.124 / 126.96.36.199 releases, use "ESSBASESERVERHOSTNAME server_name" that identifies the host where your Essbase application process runs. The value must be a valid host name and must map to an IP address assigned to the computer. If ESSBASESERVERHOSTNAME is not specified in essbase.cfg, Essbase and the applications listen on all interfaces (IP_ANY).
For details on this refer to Essbase Tech Ref
In EPM 188.8.131.52 release, in Configure Essbase Server specifies the host name (in Binding Host Name field) to which Essbase Agent and Essbase Server bind and where an Essbase application process runs.
For details refer to http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E57185_01/epm.1112/epm_install/essbaseAgentPortPanel.html

Using the @CURRMBR Function
Essbase provides a suite of calculation functions to facilitate the definition and development of complex member formula calculations. The @CURRMBR calculation function is especially useful with scoping and managing complex calculations. The @CURRMBR (dimension) function is used to return the name of the member currently being calculated in the specified dimension.[Read More]

The 184.108.40.206 Essbase Readme document has been updated to include a change in recommendation with regard to rebuilding versus migrating the Essbase outlines between major release upgrades. This represents a change in the upgrade process to ensure outlines take advantage of any new structures, features and functionality introduced in the major release.

The OLAP_MAX_CONNECTIONS property controls the maximum number of connections from Planning to Essbase. The default setting is 10, but the property can be increased to allow for more concurrent Essbase connections. The Hyperion Planning Administrator’s Guide recommends a setting of 20 for 100 users and 100 for 500 users.

Planning allows users to enter date values in Planning. For example, a start date can be entered as 11/01/2013 if the format is MM/DD/YYYY. Although the values are entered in date format, it is possible to calculate values based on dates entered.

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.
