  • OS

  • BI Server
  • Presentation Server

Below is a list of tools to collect and/or to visualize this metrics.

The big difference between 10g and 11g is that:

In 10g, the System Management Console allows to get the OBI Performances Metrics through the JMX technology.

The definition of the perfCounters for OBIEE 10g are located in the directory OracleBI_Home\systemsmanagement\resources\performance and describe in two xml files:

  • perf_OracleBIPresentationServer.xml
  • perf_OracleBIServer.xml

You can see it when OC4J start.
