My collection of Maximo 7.5 Performance Technotes


Once in a while I'll get questions about performance problems.  Specific scenarios can be resolved by applying Interim Fixes or adding indexes.  Those critical and urgent problems often happen throughout the entire system.


Here is a collection of performance related recordings and technotes that might help:

create indexes and use the recommended settings for Oracle 10g and 11g below:

  • cursor_sharing - We highly recommend that this be set to FORCE for optimal performance in Maximo. Currently, the value is set to EXACT
  • processes - make sure this value is high enough to handle all of the concurrent connections expected to the database. We generally recommend 4000
  • sessions - we generally recommend keeping this the same as processes, e.g. 4000
  • transactions - we recommend this be set to 2425
  • session_cached_cursors - the recommended value is 400
  • session_max_open_files - the recommended value is 300
  • nls_length_semantics - if you use Unicode or double-byte, then you would want to set this value to CHAR
