  • Logon to Enterprise InfoViewApp or BILaunchpad is slow to respond.
  • Objects in InfoViewApp or BILaunchpad Home page are slow to display.
  • Browsing Public Folders in InfoViewApp or BILaunchpad is slow.
  • Further investigation into Oracle CMS DB performance may show lock contentions within CMS_InfoObjects7 table  - this is completely normal but, in certain circumstances, mentioned below, the lock(s) remains for a longer time interval, causing a longer wait time than normal.
  • Oracle DB monitoring tool (Grid Control), may show an increase in CPU usage
  • Lock contention time may be noticed more during higher concurrent logons and increased scheduling activity.



  • SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 3.1
  • SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence Platform (BI) 4.0 / 4.1
