Handling MLOG's and MRP_AD% Tables When Value Chain Planning Applications Are Not Used By The Business
(Doc ID 580205.1)
Last updated on MARCH 12, 2021
Oracle Advanced Supply Chain Planning - Version 11.5.7 and later Information in this document applies to any platform.
When a customer has decided not to use Data Collections and Value Chain Planning (aka APS - Advanced Planning and Scheduling) applications, but have run the initial installation processes, then the MLOG and MRP_AD% tables that were created will grow in an uncontrolled manner. OR The Data Collection objects do not exist, but this note is being used since some MLOG's that are shared with Data Collections are very large - e.g. MLOG$_BOM% tables.
If the business is no longer going to use these applications, then the objects can be managed using this note.
AND IF the business later changes direction and decides to implement applications that requires Data Collections to be run, then the entities can be easily restored to the system by:
Set profile MSC: Source Setup Required - Yes (or Y in 11.5.10 and below)
Run Data Collections and any missing objects will be recreated.
It is recommended to apply the latest Data Collection patch before recreating objects. Reference <Note 223026.1> for the latest collection patch (This note provides links to notes for R12.0 and 12.1 Latest Patches Notes)
Symptom that can lead to using this note
APS/GOP Is Not Used And MLOG Tables Grow Uncontrolled
MLOG grow until all space is used up
MRP_AD Tables are growing and rows are never removed
ATP Data Collection or Planning Data Collection is not used.
Rare, but also possible is Load/Copy/Merge MDS MRCSAL1 fails with error message - ORACLE error 12096 in mrlins_insert_mrp_sched_dates Cause: mrlins_insert_mrp_sched_dates failed due to ORA-12096: error in materialized view log on "MRP"."MRP_SCHEDULE_DATES" ORA-01653: unable to extend table MRP.MLOG$_MRP_SCHEDULE_DATES
