iBIP has high performance engines and interfaces, but when iBIP reads thousands of files from a hard disk, the operating system and the network can slow down the process. Is the same problem that occurs when thousands of files are copied form one place to another, the bottleneck is in the there, in the reading process of many files.
Reading thousand of files is something desirable for most iBIP users, specially for historical GDS files, so there are things that should be done in this cases:
When your first prepare an analysis of thousands of files you should copy the files to the hard disk of your computer, after that, the applet can be saved with sources inside it, and be used locally or form the network. File size is not a big problems for networks or operating systems, what is usually a problem is to read too many files.
Note: Remember to save file folders as Not Active.
Applets contains data that can be used as a sources of another applet, follow the next two steps:
Load file sources locally in an empty applet and save it.
Note: You can save the applet in the a network, it will not affect performance.
Use applet saved in STEP 1 in a new created applet.
It is recommended to save historical information in applets and only connect active folders to current information.
In this example, the historical information is stored in another applet, and the current information in an active folder.
