A couple of questions about Store and Forward:
- This topic says that prior to 7.8 it was not advisable to set the Max Records higher than 50k. Is that fixed? And what is the new practical upper limit for Max Records? (ignoring disk-space)
- Is there a practical upper limit for Forward Write Size?
- Is there an optimal ratio that should be maintained between Store Max Records and Forward Write Size?
- If I increase the Write Size significantly, then is it best practice to also increase the Write Time?
Last things, I noticed that the units of time for the “Write Time” setting in Store and Forward is called out in the inductive university videos, but I didn’t see it in the manual. Not sure if this is the place for this kind of suggestion, but I think adding the units to Write Time in the text manual is a great idea. Also the description for Forward Write Size and Write Time in the manual, (“Same as disk cache setting above”), is not completely accurate, I’m sure. Forward Write Size and Write Time are at best “Similar to disk cache setting above”, or else they wouldn’t be separate fields with different values (and I’m not recommending that you simply rewrite it to say “similar”. It should say exactly what it does.). I don’t mean to nit-pick, but I’m sure you understand why I wouldn’t like to guess at “you know what I mean” type descriptions when I’m designing an industrial system.
