MTFeeders Exception Message in tm1server.log file

Question & Answer


The following exception message is seen in the tm1server.log file: 
12345 [] INFO 2018-01-01 09:09:09.099 TM1.Server TM1CubeImpl::ProcessFeeders: Exception, done computing feeders for base cube 'ANY CUBE'.
This message might be presented when starting the Planning Analytics model or when saving rules.


The exception message indicates the MTFeeders feature has failed to process feeders in parallel. In this case, feeders will continue to be processed in serial. There may be a negative impact to performance for model startup or saving rules. When this condition happens, it is possible that feeders have been processed incorrectly.

An improvement to the MTFeeders functionality is planned for a future release of Planning Analytics server that is intended to prevent this condition.


If this exception message is encountered while using MTFeeders=T then the multi-threaded feeders should be disabled by setting MTFeeders=F in the tm1s.cfg file.
