Hi Guys,

We are having planning application with one plan type. Currently application holding nearly 70 GB of data (35 .pagfiles) and 2 index files. We are using Bufferd I\O

We have a batch process scheduled to run on every afternoon and batch will below mentioned things.

1. login with maxl.

2. Unload database.

3. load database.

4. get data base properties. (display database "Application"."database";)

5. perl script to check the whether 'index cache current value' more than one GB or not, If not exit the batch.

After restarting the database 'index cache current value ' resetting to 1MB and sometimes database refusing to start.

Below is the error message we see from Application log:

[Fri Sep 27 10:16:13 2019]Local/CORPPLAN///140016206591872/Info(1070173)

Using buffered I/O for the index and data files

Our initial analysis:

We thought our server is running out of memory , but server team said server always have 40GB free space out od 64GB RAM.

Our observations:

1. It is not happening on daily basis.

2. If we restart application instead of database 'index cache current value' setting to the value same  'index cache setting'.

Other things to notice:

1. We reset database and reload every night.

2. Our unix box will be restated once in a 15 days.

3. Hyperion service swill recycled on daily basis.

    This error message usually pops up when the Index cache and Data cache exceed the available memory.

    Did you try lowering the data and index cache based on the block and page file size of the cube ?

    Hi 2819644m

    We are using Buffered I\O so we are concerned about data file cache.

    We set the index cache value based on the size of the index files.

    Hi All,

    Oracle suggested us to place below mentioned setting in .cfg file for essbase.


    I have updated this setting and tested and i didn't see the issue with index current cache value.

    I am not able to find any information about this setting in oracle docs, Please let me know if you guys know more about this setting.
