How to Identify Tuning opportunity

Every issues we have tuning opportunities but before start to troubleshoot the issue we need to analysis the Issue.
First need to collect basic level of information to user
Second task is where to get the information to server
Third task is find out the issue
Most of the common performance problem causes due to
Lack of Sufficient server hardware Ex: CPU,Memory,Storage,Network Poorly configured initialization parameters Poor application coding
Collect the basic level of information to user
Program Level:
It’s happening in Prod/Non- Prod? Oracle seeded program/Custom program? How much time it used earlier? Any recent code changes done/not? How much data is getting processed?
Application Level:
Is this happening for all user or particular user? Is this happening all forms or particular forms? Application level performance issue Document click hear

Where to get the information to server
Hardware issues:
Need to check TOP command and identify the CPU and memory consumption. Need to check file system space (df…

Output post processor in concurrent manager

Concurrent Processing using the Output Post Processor (OPP) to enforce post-processing actions for concurrent requests.
Post-processing actions are actions taken on concurrent request output.
Example of a post-processing action is that used in Concurrent Processing support of XML Publisher.
If a request is submitted with an XML Publisher template specified as a layout for the concurrent request output, then after the concurrent manager finishes running the concurrent program, it will contact the OPP to apply the XML Publisher template and create the final output.

Tuning for Output post processor
1.Increase the number of Output Post Processor as follows:
 Logon to Applications with "System Administrator" responsibility
 Navigate to Concurrent -> Manager -> Define
 Query for "Output Post Processor"
 Click on "Work Shifts" and Increase the number of processes. (If you have 2 processes then make them 4 if required to 8).
 make sure that you have oracle.apps.fnd…
