Oracle Retail Demand Forecasting - Version 14.1.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


In the Oracle Retail Demand Forecasting (RDF) application, the floating forecast is slow.  This occurs even when no floating events are configured.  The long increment time is found in one calculation:

Steps to reproduce:
1. PreGenerateForecast -InputFile ../rdf_pre_generate_baseline_forecast.xml -loglevel all
2. PreGenerateForecast -InputFile ../rdf_pre_generate_causal_forecast.xml -loglevel all
3. PreGenerateForecast -InputFile ../rdf_pre_generate_floating_forecast.xml -loglevel all
4. generate -InputFile rdf_generate_baseline_forecast.xml -loglevel all
5. generate -InputFile rdf_generate_floating_forecast.xml -loglevel all

Notice that the floating forecast generation takes a long time.
