This technote will describe how to add additional processors to increase Automated File Processing for ProjectWise. Please take note of the minimum requirements above, this will not work properly and is not supported unless the minimum requirements are met.
Please make a backup of your Orchestration Framework database before following this technote. This will allow you to scale back to the original configuration in case this does not work out for you. If it does not work for you, just restore the original database over the newly configured database.
In order to get the processing to work as fast as possible, please follow this blog on how to properly configure the Full Text Indexing values in your ProjectWise Administrator:
The AFP-multiple-processors.zip file can be found here. There are instructions as well as notes inside of the file:
After testing it appears that adding one extra set of processors to bring it up to two sets of processors is the best approach, three total sets have been attempted on some servers and some work but some it tended to max the server's resources out and make it unresponsive. It is your choice if you would like to go above 2, but be warned. Also when upgrading you will want to start with a fresh Orchestration Framework database since this does not convert over when doing the upgrade, after your upgrade please feel free to run the scripts again. Please let TSG know if you have any questions on this technote.
