As a hopeless DIYer (do it yourself-er) I seldom start with an adequate set of the right tools to hand to complete a job (such as when I recently replaced the plug on a soymilk making machine bought in Cambodia...a project which ultimately involved multiple screwdrivers, a volt-meter, a pair of pliers, and a knife...and no documentation .
start DIY troubleshooting problems in the Oracle Hyperion EPM or OBIEE
environments, however, you need not fear a lack of tools or a lack of
Your software elves at Oracle have bundled two large toolboxes full of useful tools with EPM 11.1.2.x and OBIEE 11g installs: Remote Diagnostic Assistant (RDA) and Enterprise Manager (EM).
Earlier in this blog you will find details on RDA in the RDA Advisor Webcast.
Our EPM developers have written some Tips&Tricks hints in a document on how you may deploy EM. (Alternatively if that file is replaced with one of a different name do a web search for: >> "Enterprise Manager" EPM Tips << )
OBIEE's installer automatically deploys the EM tool. I'm eager to prepare a Webcast Advisor on EM...but need to patiently await the next EPM release with its added functionality.
Meanwhile enjoy exploring your local http://<WebLogicAdminServer>:7001/em and http://<WebLogicAdminServer>:7001/dms
Use '/em' to slice and dice your logs and '/dms' (Dynamic Monitoring Service) to track memory and load on your Java servlets.
Feel more confident in your next EPM and OBIEE DIY troubleshooting task...the tools you need are near at hand!Cheers, Maurice
