Advanced Properties

Advanced Properties

Advanced properties control the performance of the PowerCenter Repository Service and the repository database.
The following table describes the advanced properties:
Property
Description
Authenticate MS-SQL User
Uses Windows authentication to access the Microsoft SQL Server database. The user name that starts the PowerCenter Repository Service must be a valid Windows user with access to the Microsoft SQL Server database. To apply changes, restart the PowerCenter Repository Service.
Required Comments for Checkin
Requires users to add comments when checking in repository objects. To apply changes, restart the PowerCenter Repository Service.
Minimum Severity for Log Entries
Level of error messages written to the PowerCenter Repository Service log. Specify one of the following message levels:
  • Fatal
  • Error
  • Warning
  • Info
  • Trace
  • Debug
When you specify a severity level, the log includes all errors at that level and above. For example, if the severity level is Warning, fatal, error, and warning messages are logged. Use Trace or Debug if Informatica Global Customer Support instructs you to use that logging level for troubleshooting purposes. Default is INFO.
Resilience Timeout
Period of time that the service tries to establish or reestablish a connection to another service. If blank, the service uses the domain resilience timeout. Default is 180 seconds.
Limit on Resilience Timeout
Maximum amount of time that the service holds on to resources to accommodate resilience timeouts. This property limits the resilience timeouts for client applications connecting to the service. If a resilience timeout exceeds the limit, the limit takes precedence. If blank, the service uses the domain limit on resilience timeouts. Default is 180 seconds.
To apply changes, restart the PowerCenter Repository Service.
Repository Agent Caching
Enables repository agent caching. Repository agent caching provides optimal performance of the repository when you run workflows. When you enable repository agent caching, the PowerCenter Repository Service process caches metadata requested by the PowerCenter Integration Service. Default is Yes.
Agent Cache Capacity
Number of objects that the cache can contain when repository agent caching is enabled. You can increase the number of objects if there is available memory on the machine where the PowerCenter Repository Service process runs. The value must not be less than 100. Default is 10,000.
Allow Writes With Agent Caching
Allows you to modify metadata in the repository when repository agent caching is enabled. When you allow writes, the PowerCenter Repository Service process flushes the cache each time you save metadata through the PowerCenter Client tools. You might want to disable writes to improve performance in a production environment where the PowerCenter Integration Service makes all changes to repository metadata. Default is Yes.
Heart Beat Interval
Interval at which the PowerCenter Repository Service verifies its connections with clients of the service. Default is 60 seconds.
Maximum Active Users
Maximum number of connections the repository accepts from repository clients. Default is 200.
Maximum Object Locks
Maximum number of locks the repository places on metadata objects. Default is 50,000.
Database Pool Expiration Threshold
Minimum number of idle database connections allowed by the PowerCenter Repository Service. For example, if there are 20 idle connections, and you set this threshold to 5, the PowerCenter Repository Service closes no more than 15 connections. Minimum is 3. Default is 5.
Database Pool Expiration Timeout
Interval, in seconds, at which the PowerCenter Repository Service checks for idle database connections. If a connection is idle for a period of time greater than this value, the PowerCenter Repository Service can close the connection. Minimum is 300. Maximum is 2,592,000 (30 days). Default is 3,600 (1 hour).
Preserve MX Data for Old Mappings
Preserves MX data for old versions of mappings. When disabled, the PowerCenter Repository Service deletes MX data for old versions of mappings when you check in a new version. Default is disabled.
If you update the following properties, restart the PowerCenter Repository Service for the modifications to take effect:
  • Minimum severity for log entries
  • Maximum active users
  • Maximum object locks
