OBIEE mystery: nqserver does not starts, quietly, without errors

Filed under: Uncategorized — oracleaide @ 1:29 am

This is not a new problem 

“I am having a problem starting my BI server (Red Hat Linux) – when I view the NQServer.log file after starting the server, I see that it’s loading each of my subject areas. It has a message saying Finished loading … for each subject area. However, it’s not getting anywhere past that. Usually it will say the server has been started, but I am not seeing that.”


There are few problems in life that cannot be solved using the KIWI principle (kill it with iron).  

In our case a poor Linux host did not have enough memory to load a bloated RPD and start a server fast enough.

Switching to from 4 to 8 Gb of RAM solved the problem. 

The empirical evidence (and a KIWI workaround) are not enough, though.  That system deserves some real profiling.
