Oracle® has launched CPADMIN, a concurrent processing command-line utility for E-Business Suite® (EBS) versions R12.1.3 and R12.2.x. CPADMIN is a menu-based utility that wraps multiple existing utilities for concurrent processes and allows you to work on several concurrent process-related tasks under a single menu.
Newly released and user friendly, CPADMIN is the replacement for the cmclean.sql script in EBS Release 12. This blog explores some features of CPADMIN and shows you how to use it to execute multiple tasks with a single command.
You can use CPADMIN for the following tasks:

To activate the CPADMIN utility in EBS, apply the Concurrent Processing RUP2 Patchset 22549247, which is RUP3 for Concurrent Processing Release 12.1.3. This patch consolidates Concurrent Processing RUP2 (19287293) along with all fixes released after RUP2.
Note: Before you apply patch 22549247, ensure that you have applied patches 17884289 and 8919491. For Oracle EBS 12.2.x, this feature is already enabled.
CPADMIN is an interesting tool that consolidates different CP management functions into a single menu-based tool. It is simple to use, and you can run it in PuTTY® to monitor the CM status and start or stop the manager from the backend. You don’t need to open an application URL to monitor a CM or to start or stop the manager. With this tool, you can execute multiple tasks with a single command. CPADMIN replaces cmclean.sql, so use CPADMIN to perform that function. You can do multiple CP-related tasks from the backend, which you previously could not perform.
