Enhancement for WLS BSU (Smart Update): Resolves Very Long Time to Apply Patches - Especially When Checking for Patch Conflicts (Doc ID 2271366.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 23, 2020

Applies to:

Oracle WebLogic Server - Version 10.3.1 to 10.3.6
Oracle Fusion Middleware - Version to [Release Oracle11g]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


WLS BSU (Smart Update) may take a very long time to apply patches. This is especially true with larger patches such as the Patch Set Update (PSU) and is most noticeable when going through the process to check for conflicts. You may have increased memory for the BSU in the past, but is still not completing in an acceptable time. Using the normal command to apply a patch:

./ -install -patchlist=XXXX -patch_download_dir=/home/weblogic/wls/1036/utils/bsu/cache_dir -prod_dir=/home/weblogic/wls/1036/wlserver_10.3
