Performance Decrease When Running Billing with BRM PS16 (Doc ID 2221922.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 31, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Billing and Revenue Management - Version 7.5.0.16.0 to 7.5.0.17.0 [Release 7.5.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

On Oracle Communications Billing and Revenue Management (BRM) Applications 7.5.0.16.0 version, when calling PCM_OP_BILL_MAKE_BILL opcode, it is observed that, it has increased on average of 13-18% in execution time compared to PS14 and impacted on the overall run-time of the daily billing jobs.

In PS16, it was reading a product from the database in fm_subs_utils_get_rateplan_new. In PS14, it was instead calling the PCM_OP_RATE_GET_PRODUCT opcode which read the product details from the cache. This change seemed to add enough processing time to explain for the performance decrease.
