Symptoms


On : 12.1.3 version, Constrained planning in CRP

Users are on 12.1.3 base apps and applied 12.1.3.1 patch 9771731 and have applied one off patch 12426868 to get the following 64 bit executable:

MSONWA64.exe 120.16.12010000.50

Users are running an ECC constrained plan with aggregation 50 days/6 weeks/2 periods. They are planning with 50 days minute buckets but no hours/days. 5 orgs being planned. When they run this plan it takes approximately 9 hours to run the plan and most of the time is being taken solving lp5 in MSONWA64 - Memory Based Planner 64 bit AIX:

Launched concurrent request 899468 for E_LAUNCH_UI_POSTPROC
..Total Planning Time 447:50
Total memory usage: 819104

This log alone took about 7.5 hours

Specific area that took a lont time in the log was:

Solve LP t = 24987 seconds.

About 6.94 hours on lp5 all by itself!!!

...Optimization completed 430:49 (SCO)
....Scheduling completed 12:55 (HLS)
...Generate data completed 15:45 (MBP)

Things tried and some did help performance:

1. If the plan aggregation is 20 days or less, the plan completes in about 50 minutes

2. From Note 747739.1 - they tried the following profiles but it didn't help:

Profile MSO: Maximum Operations Per Slice = 3000. They changed to 25000
Profile MSO: Allow Schedule Gaps for Shared Supplies = No. They changed it to Yes
Profile MSO: Use SCO Time Aggregation = No. They changed it to Yes
Profile MSO: Optimization Daily Aggregation Buckets = NULL. They changed it to 60
Profile MSO: Optimization Weekly Aggregation Buckets = Null. They changed it to 8

3. We unchecked Net WIP Jobs on Org in copy Plan definition and that plan completed within 50 min using daily bucket = 50 days.

4. We can run the plan setting profile MSO: Number of Threads for Optimization from 1 to 2 and run the plan with 50 daily buckets, it runs in about 90 minutes total which is acceptable for now. They don't understand the hanging in lp5 for such a long period

This looks very similar to same customer in Bug 10347015 had before and fixed file was msopmmd2.lcc-120.136.12010000.121 and MSONWA64.exe 120.16.12010000.43 but customer now has msopmmd2.lcc 120.136.12010000.130 and MSONWA64.exe 120.16.12010000.50 which are both higher. This bug is fixed in 12.1.3.4 code line

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
Expect the plan to run in 90 minutes or less and not hang on lp5

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Run ECC Constrained Plan with 50 daily buckets
2. Performance is bad - up to 9 hours
3. Found multiple workarounds that seem to help, some don't
