R12.1 Rapid Install (RI) R12.1 Maintenance Pack (MP)


R12.1 was generally available (GA) in May 2009
Via Oracle Software Delivery Cloud (formerly known as Electronic Product Delivery (EPD)) and Oracle Stores

Can be used by new and upgrading customers (11.5.9 and above) to go directly to R12.1
If you are on R11i, use R12.1 RI from the software delivery cloud. Follow instructions from the Upgrade Guide: 11i to 12.1 and 12.1.1 Release notes If you are on R12.0.X, use R12.1 MP (7303030) from My Oracle Support (MOS).

R12.1 Upgrade Best Practices

Copyright 2012, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.

Insert Information Protection Policy Classification from Slide 8

Upgrade Best Practices


Identification of required patches
Prepare a complete list of pre and post patches and recommended code levels
Keep the system current on AD/ATG/OAM code e.g. latest AD/ATG RUPs on 11i/R12.0 and once on R12.1 High priority patches from MOS. Consolidated Upgrade Patches (CUP) and required one-offs that need to be applied in pre-install mode. e.g. EBS R12.1 CUP1 (7303029:12.1.0), FIN upgrade patches from 1127593.1 Review Known-issues sections from key documents to determine additional pre or post upgrade patches: Release notes, MP Install Instructions

Upgrade Best Practices Continued..


Patch merging, sequencing and adpatch options
Use non-interactive patching Merge patches (228779.1). Merge NLS patches per language. Perform uptime maintenance when possible
hot patching of iHelp Install on test system and point production it. Switch back once online help is upgraded online. Saves lot of time NLS patches, upload patch history and HRGLOBAL (1330470.1)

Use adpatch options such as nomaintainmrc, phtofile, nolink, nogenform, nogenrep, nocompile jsp, noautoconfig, novalidate (1078973.1)

Insert Information Protection Policy Classification from Slide 8

Upgrade Best Practices Continued..


Downtime reduction procedures
Use Shared APPL_TOP (384248.1) with Distributed AD for (236469.1) upgrades and regular maintenance for multi-node instances
No need to apply the same patch on multiple tiers Distributed AD adds to the degree of parallelism by distributing AD workers across application tier nodes and improves timing for D/G portion of the patch driver.

Saves time to patch the file system (C/G portion) by using a patched up copy of production instance file system Use in 11i => R12.1 upgrade to avoid applying NLS C/G portion Can use for R12.0.X => R12.1 upgrade and once on R12.1

Pre-upgrade activities
Identify and execute tasks that could be completed in a separate downtime period, prior to the production upgrade
Use applicable steps mentioned in the "Downtime reduction" and Upgrade By Request appendices E and G of the R12.1 upgrade guide Upgrade RDBMS version to latest certified for the current APPS level ( 11.2.0.2 / 11.1.0.7 / 10.2.0.5 ) Convert to Oracle Applications Tablespace Model (OATM) Compacts data, optimizes storage settings and I/O Other planned HW or OS upgrades

Upgrade Best Practices Continued..


Database tier configuration
Maximize SGA and PGA sizing
An upgrade only involves 10's of concurrent sessions; starting rules of thumb ... log buffer = 30 to 100 Mb shared pool = 1 to 4 Gb pga target = 3 to 20 Gb buffer cache = multi Gb, be generous without causing excessive paging or swapping Adjust with help from AWR pool advisories

Database tier configuration
Other upgrade specific init.ora changes
If specified, remove db_file_multiblock_read_count Maximize multiblock I/O sizes Set job_queue_processes = # of CPUS adobjcmp.sql (Phases : plb+90 and last+63) Set parallel_max_servers = 2 X CPUs Helps with large index creation, stats gathering and some large upg+ phase jobs

Need to test with production-like DB server and I/O subsystem Shutdown other RAC instances

Upgrade Best Practices Continued..


Batch size and #workers
Batch size
10K is suitable for most installs, you can test other values from 1K up to 100K if time allows Starting rule-of-thumb is between 1 and 1.5 x #COREs

# Workers

It is critical to do multiple rounds of testing, adjusting above settings to maximize server utilization, but constrained by factors such as
Memory utilization (no swapping/ excessive paging) CPU utilization (scale down if at 100%) I/O response times (scale down if averages > 20 ms)
