As mentioned in my first blog, management of OBIEE component processes is essential for performing a range of maintenance operations and diagnosis & resolution of performance issues. In this second part of the two part blog series, I will discuss the management through Graphical User Interface i.e., Fusion Middleware Control (FMC). If you have an OBI system started, you can start/stop or restart the OBI component processes through FMC.
First log into the Fusion Middleware Control and go to the Overview page by expanding the Business Intelligence folder from where you need to select bi-instance node. The overview page displays the current system status and issues identified within the BI domain.
- Once you are on an overview page, you can see the Availability page header
2. By default the Processes tab is opened for the Availability page. This is where we can see the status of the process with an up & green arrow denoting the process is running and red & down arrow for a stopped process.
There are six buttons - Start All, or Stop All, Restart All buttons to start stop and restart all processes in one go and Start Selected, Stop Selected, Restart Selected buttons, which can be used to start stop and restart selected component processes.
I have gone through how the OBI components can be managed in the two part blog series, both through commands and graphical user interface in Fusion Middleware Control. In the absence of FMC, commands can be used, but the monitoring and management becomes easier with FMC. For any questions on the topic click below:
