Tuning the Reconciler Server Settings

Although the default settings are usually adequate, you can sometimes improve Reconciler performance if you adjust the following settings on the Edit Server Settings page:

During idle times, the threads stop if they have no work to do, but only down to the minimum number of threads specified. As the load increases, the Reconciler adds more threads until the maximum number of threads is reached. The Reconciler never has less than the minimum number of threads or more than the maximum.

Generally, more threads allow more concurrency. However, at some point, too many threads can put too much load on the machine or just do not provide additional benefit.

Note –

Recommending generic, optimal settings is not possible because deployments are so different. Reconciler settings must be adjusted differently for each deployment environment.

ProcedureTo Change the Reconciler Server Settings

Perform the following steps to change the Reconciler server settings:

  1. Log into the Administrator interface.

  2. Click the Configure -> Servers -> Reconciler tabs.

  3. When the Edit Server Settings page is displayed, adjust the settings as necessary.
