We are experiencing intermittent slow autorep -J <jobname> responses despite:
Rebuilding database indexes.
Restarting the instance Application Servers.
In EEM-enabled instances, the Application Server keeps a local cache of EEM policies in memory. If this cache becomes stale, it can cause intermittent performance issues with autorep. This could sometimes lead to unexpected access denies for the user who has valid access to the objects in EEM.
Add the following setting in $AUTOUSER/autosys.sh.<hostname>:
AS_IAM_CACHE_UPDATE=300; export AS_IAM_CACHE_UPDATE
Restart the Application Server service
The parameter AS_IAM_CACHE_UPDATE sets the interval (in seconds) for the Application Server to update its EEM cache.
