Increase Max Record Number in FileCatalyst Central
Posted by Aly Essa on 25 September 2020 09:00 AM
Overview

FileCatalyst Central is our node management tool which will receive transfer records from nodes and store the data in our local database. When an instance of Central has a combination of many nodes, high traffic and/or reports being generated, users will find that the response time from Central will be increased. 

When any of the tasks mentioned above are being processed simultaneously there will be a larger hit on the CPU consumption. This article will show you how to increase the number of records processed per minute so that some of the CPU consumption can be alleviated. By default, Central is set up to process 600 records per minute.

Please note that this change should be made after you upgrade your Central instance to v3.8.1.
