Quick Hit for Server Batch jobs


Legendary Poster
We just implemented a knowlege garden suggestion for improving performance of server batch jobs. The Knowledge Garden document is oti-99-0024. The suggested change was to change the Enterprise Server's JDE.INI file's RequestedService setting in [Lock Manager] from TS to NONE.

Changing this setting caused our full MRP run to change from 3 1/2 hours to 3 hours. Leadtime Rollup went from 3 hours and 45 minutes to just 45 minutes.

Made us smile :)

Doesn't this change disable the Transaction Processing in the same time?
I have read something about that you have to somehow synchronize the [LOCK MANAGER] settings on the workstations and on the server(s).
Please check the "Setting the jde.ini for Transaction Processing and Lock Manager" subsection in the DEvelopment Tools XE!!! (not B7331) documentation.

I believe setting the RequestedService=NONE should only stop UBE's executing on that server from requesting a Time Stamp on updates (if set to TS, of course). That does improve performance quite a bit.

I suppose you lose the "Record has been changed" functionality available from the Time Stamp service, but with UBE's that should not be an issue.
