Good morning to all,

On a machine with Windows Server 2012 R2 I have the same process that happens the following:

Compiled and with its PB 2022 Build 1892 runtime packager, it takes: 18 minutes.

Compiled and with its runtime packager of PB 2022 R3 Build 3356, takes: 52 minutes

Has anyone had this same situation?
Is there anything I need to consider?

Please I am looking for your help or ideas.

Thank you.

Has anyone had this problem with over 100,000 accesses to an Oracle msg file?

Hi Eduardo,

Can you tell me which tool you use to count access times?
Did you use any remote access to run your application, such as Citrix or mstsc, etc? If you run the application directly on Windows 10/11 without using any remote access, will it work normally?

Regards,
Ken

Hi, Eduardo - 

What I'm going to suggest may or may not be feasible for your situation, but I will throw it out there for you to consider...

I think it would be useful to have some baseline data that contains some finer granularity that simply the overall completion time. Can you add timing/recording functionality to this process that collects data at several key and/or critical points? I would then compile/run with the Build 1892 runtime environment to collect this baseline dataset and verify that the overall completion time is similar to that observed before (roughly 18 minutes, I believe).

Once that data is collected, compile/run with the Build 3356 runtime environment and compare the datasets.

If you see, say, one part of the overall process that is performing abysmally but you still cannot determine possible causes, then perhaps you can include additional, finer data collection points in that portion of the process, then repeat.

This approach is how I would attack this issue if I were in your situation.

The GlobalMemoryStatus or GlobalMemoryStatusEx Windows API functions may be helpful. I can supply you with the PB structure(s) and external function declarations to interface with these API's, if desired.

Best regards, John

Hi Eduardo,

 

Can you elaborate on how you compiled it? using ORCA or PBAutoBuild?

I suggest you submit a bug in the support system.

 

 

Regards,

Ken

Did you use PB IDE to compile? Please note that PB IDE doesn’t support to be installed on Windows Server OS.

I develop in Windows 11, I make the compilation that generates the .EXE and the .PBD extension files, then they are copied manually to the computer folder with Windows Server. It has always been done this way, if there is something that changes or improves I would like to know. Thank you.

did you try setting antivirus exclusions on the directory where the exe is?

It does not affect the antivirus, I understand that the antivirus blocks or may slow down during the first execution, but we are talking about a process that runs 3 times a day every day and its only difference is the version of PB that has been used for its compilation.

well, if it were me, i would try it with the exclusion to see if it made any difference.

Hi.

Not sure if this is related, but I would start by checking if it's related to accessibility settings. If disabled, in PB 2022 R3 there is a change that may affect your application performance. Take a look at Accessibility improvements - - What's New (appeon.com).

Basically in PB 2022 R3 you need to move those settings to pb.ini application section:

[Application]
accessibility=0

Yes, I do not use these settings any more in PB 2022 R3 as their defaults as now OFF.

You only need the custom PB.ini if you want them ON. ;-)

[Application] accessibility=0

I tested it and as indicated, it has not had any positive effect on speed
