Hyperion Financial Management (HFM) Metadata Load Is Very Slow

Loading Metadata to Hyperion Financial Management (HFM) application takes very long time.

During the metadata load when entity hierarchy is changed (members are moved, added or deleted) HFM has to verify calculation status for each scenario – year combination.

On HFM application server add the following Windows Registry Entry to use multiple processor threads instead of single thread to verify and update calculation status:

 HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Hyperion Solutions\Hyperion Financial Management\Server
Value: NumThreadsToUseWhenUpdatingCalcStatusSystemWasChanged
Data: 1 (Decimal) (Default setting)

The maximum value for this setting is 8. After increasing this setting memory useage should be monitored, especially on 32-bit systems
