Demystifying the FileMaker Server Top Call Stats Log Are you wondering why your FileMaker Server is running slowly or performing poorly? The FileMaker Server top call statistics log can help. It records up to 25 of the most impactful remote calls to your server that occur during a collection interval. Using this native FileMaker feature, you can see who is connected to your server and what actions they are performing. This can give you an idea of why your server might be running slowly or performing poorly. Sometimes it can be difficult to understand all of the statistics displayed. In order to help bring clarity to this, Joe Martin, Senior Developer here at 360Works, put together a demo to give you a clearer picture of what is going on with your FileMaker Server and how you can improve your development. He will give you greater top call insight and cover the relationship between top call stats, client stats, and the server stats log.

Hi all My server is running on FMS 13.0v9 and my clients are running FMP 12.0v4. The mismatch is due to my clients still mostly being on OS X 10.6.8. I'm having a strange issue with slowness that I was hoping to get some insight on. Here goes: I have a layout (named "Checkin Layout") that access a table and a few related tables. The main table has a field named "CheckedIn" which contains either a 1 or a 0. The user checks a checkbox, which enters the value "1". The auto-enter calculation is as follows: Case (CheckedIn = 1 ; 1 ; 0) This makes it so that the value isn't ever empty, but will be either 0 or 1. Users have lately been complaining that toggling this checkbox is becoming incredibly slow. I initially tried to remove objects from the Checkin Layout, but found that even if the layout contained nothing but the field in question, toggling the checkbox was still incredibly slow. I then tried changing the auto-enter calculation, thinking that may help. I changed the "Case" function to "If" and noticed that the speed shot up immediately. However, I found that if i closed and reopened my layout, the slowness came back. After some more experimentation, I found that opening the "Manage -> Database" window and changing ANY definitions or calculations would make the Checkin Layout extremely fast, until it is closed. Then once it is opened it becomes slow again. I'm curious if there is anything happening when I adjust definitions that I could do via scripting. The slowness is taking its toll on productivity, and I can't be around to mess with definitions every time a user needs to check something in. Is there anything I can do?? Thanks in advance for your help. MoMo
