This article describes how to improve the speed of the view file generation.


Steps to improve the Performance of View Data Generation:

By default, the OBGE polls the Hot Folder once a minute to see if there are view data requests to process. To decrease this wait to 5 seconds, do the following on the Application Server:

  1. Log in as admin or as a member of the Admin group on the Application Server.
  2. Open a Command Prompt window and change to the C drive by typing C:\ and pressing Enter.
  3. Change the directories by typing cd \esko\bg_prog_fastservcltnt_vXXX\com_win where XXX is your OBGE version (for Esko Software Suite 7, it is 070). Press Enter.
  4. Type cfsedt2 and press Enter.
  5. Log in to the Esko BackStage / Automation Engine Configuration Tool using admin as both username and password. The server should be the name of the Application Server.
  6. Expand Servers > Hot Folders > Properties.
  7. Select hf.pollinterval in the left pane.
  8. In the right pane, change 60 to 5. Make sure to keep the beginning and ending double quotation marks.
  9. Click Change.

The OBGE will now poll the Hot Folder every 5 seconds instead of once every minute.
