Hyperion Diagnostics Tool

I don't remember seeing this tool before; I think it is new to 11.1.1. It essentially tests the different Hyperion services and gives you a quick picture on the status of the services.

Based on the output that prints in the command window, it appears to go further than just checking to see if the services are running. Here is the command window during the generation process. Click on the graphic below to get a larger (more readable) version.

When the process is done checking all of the services, it summarizes it in a nicely formatted dashboard that gives you a very fast way to monitor your system.

As you can see in my screenshot, both my Essbase Studio server and my HAB.Net server are having problems. I shot this when I was working on getting Essbase Studio server running on Oracle and thus it was not running. I don't normally start up the HAB.Net server as I am running our Dodeca-Essbase service on my machine; it is a more up-to-date version of the HAB.Net server anyway.

I see that your install location has ...\\... is that where the 11.1.* application installs?

That is a neat little tool and much better than, remembering the error messages to figure out when OpenLDAP isn't running.

Thanks for sharing it!

I installed my Essbase 11.1.1 stack using the default installation locations so, yes, the default installation uses the 9.5 nomenclature under the covers.

HI Tim ,

Other than what is discussed in this post, I am not sure. I do know of a company, Accelatis, that has built admin tools for some of the products in the Hyperion suite.
