Performance and timing factor improvements with load_fsccache

Hi All,

 

In an environment there was one Master FSC and 4 remote sites(Slave FSC)

To improve the assemblies loading time from the remote sites, planned to prepopulate the most frequently user assemblies to 4 remote FSC, using the steps mentioned in system administrator guide.Creating transfermode and run following.

 

plmxml_export -u=infodba -p=infodba -g=dba -item=item-id -export_bom=yes -transfermode=justDatasetsOut -xml_file=tickets.xml

 

load_fsccache -u=infodba -p=infodba -g=dba -f=load -plmxml=tickets.xml -fsctargets=FSC-ID

 

Tested the scenario of Loading big assembly after pre-populating the same to a remote FSC, but didnt find much difference of assembly load without prepopulation.

 

Want to check, if anyone tried pre-populating FSC cache and how much percentage of performance improvement was achieved in doing so. Is there any additional steps to be performed, apart from the two steps mentioned below.

 

Thanks

Phani

Are you able to confirm that the clients indeed talk to slave FSC?

 

fscadmin command has lot of options to query the FSC.. You can try those to confirm that the files are indeed pulled from slave FSC.

You might want to look into tuning the FSC's themselves. Especially if you are using a segmented cache which default values are not sufficient for a production environment (as stated in the Siemens documentation). Use TC_ROOT\fsc\bin\FMSCacheSizingTool_Ver_1_3.zip to tune your FSC's. Next you'll likely want to use "side caching" which requires that you add <exitfsc> tags to each group in the FMS Master to ensure that caching actually happened. Use the fscadmin utility to gather states on your caches and monitor them.
