In the Performance area, you define several important settings that influence the performance of the Manager web application.

Table 57: Meaning of Configuration Settings for Performance
Setting Description

Load balancing

The mode of integrated load balancing. In most cases, DistributeEqually should be selected.

Maximum workload

Maximum number of user sessions an application accepts. The application can be installed multiple times if a large number of sessions is required because system resources for each application process are limited.

Force maximum workload

The value in Maximum workload is overridden is this setting is not set. However, it is used as a threshold value for the DistributeSuccessively load balancing method.

Compress HTTP transfer

Specifies whether usage of compression for HTTP communication is set.

NOTE: Compression of HTTP communication must also be configured for Internet Information Services. For more information see the Web server documentation.

Host segmentation

Specifies host segmentation. This setting allows distribution of client sided requests to several server addresses representing aliases for the web front-end. This bypasses some of the browser limitation and can therefore shorten loading time if the network connection is bad.

File download

To enable the download of larger files, the Manager web application requires a directory in which the download can be made available to the user. This effects reports, for example, which are generated by the application and saved as PDF by the user.

Setting Description

Enable file download

Specifies whether file download is enabled. Enable this setting to allow larger files, such as reports, to be downloaded. If file download is not set, certain functions are not available.

Download directory

Directory for the application to use to make download available. The application requires full access rights to this directory.

In the area ASP.NET settings you can see some settings of ASP.Net, which can be edited by the Manager Web Configuration Editor.

Setting Description

Maximum time in seconds for processing a user request. The user request is aborted if timeout is exceeded.
