Hi all

This the last thing I need to implement on our Server as per FileMaker's installation and configuration guide:
Make the virtual memory swap file a static size so Windows doesn’t attempt to adjust it. Use the recommended file size amount

Am I right in thinking that this is in the attached section?

If so, on which drives should I be specifying the swap file size? And what would the initial and maximum size be?

Thank you1462840878_pagefile.PNG.8d1df8b6cc4f7e4c8d57903d625d2473.PNG

Use the fastest drive since this will potentially generate a fair bit of disk reads and writes.

As to the ideal size": we cannot answer that since there are million variables at play for this, it heavily depends on the nature and design of your solution and anything in it that requires server-side memory (schedules, PSoS, WebD, Data API, ....)

Also carefully consider how high to set the FMS cache, don't set it too high or you'll crowd what the OS can use and this will cause more frequent swap-outs of its memory to disk.

Use the available monitoring tools.  Set the FMS cache to 1GB and check the FMS stats.log.  Use Windows Perfmon (or an extended monitoring tool like Zabbix) to figure out how much memory the system is using and how it uses the swap files).  Until you have a clear picture, I wouldn't try to set a fixed swap file or if you do, then definitely check it almost constantly for the first week or so to make sure you have it right.

      ExecuteSQL("SELECT SUM(I.TotalAmount) FROM Invoice I JOIN Customer C ON I._kf_CustomerID = C.__kp_CustomerID WHERE date(I.InvoiceDate) between date(C.SearchFromDate ) and   date(C.SearchToDate )" ; "" ; "" )
      I have an error and couldn't figure it out.  Thanks...

      I have a client that has been using a send email script step  that brings up the outlook email client on the desktop.  This as worked for years no problem.  It has stopped work on 3 of 35 computers within the last two weeks.  I talked with there IT personal and they have assured me that no updates have happened.  The actual error is -
      Microsoft Office Outlook
      Either there is no default mail client or the current mail client cannot
      fulfill the messaging request.  Please run Microsoft Outlook and set it as
      the default mail client.
       
      I have double checked with system default  and Outlook's settings.  Both are set to default.
      The client is using the latest version of office 360's and the latest version of FileMaker 18 advance. Both 64bit.
      Any suggestions are welcome.

      I have an excel sheet that controls bills of ladings for a forestry company.  In the example you can see that there is lots going on with this Bill.  It has a payperiod, mill, truck that delivered it, etc.
      I would like setup a database to monitor this.  The fields CT1, CT2, Skid1, Skid2. PROC1, PROC2 are all contractor numbers.  There are 6 contactors.  The percentages in each line are the amount of the volume they performed  In the third line there is a value in CT1 only...they get 100% of the volume.  I can figure out most of this, but am stumped on how I can monitor when a contractor does multiple jobs..ie in line one, contractor 5, cuts and skids.  All 6 contractors could be involved in one BOL. Each one of these jobs, cutting, skidding and processing each has their own respective rate of pay as well.   I think i need a way to break down each line so that I can produce pay summaries for each of the contractors.  I had started this years ago, and thought I asked in a forum, but can't remember where.  Nonetheless, they stopped using multiple contractors per load...Now they have returned, so I am back at it.  So if this is a repost from years ago I apologize.  
      Thanks in Advance

      I am using Filemaker Server 18 on Windows Server 2012 R2
      Been using it for years with no issues
      Currently when I log in to the console it is very sluggish.
      When I get to the Dashboard it shows No databases, then it auto refreshes and the database list appears.
      Within 15 seconds of scrolling the database list to open files the screen refreshes. This situations is happening over and over in a loop.
      Any Thoughts on what is causing this issue?

      I get an error 3 when using a script to Export Records via WebDirect. Using FileMaker Server 18 and have tried both Safari and Chrome both with same results. I have tried using the temporary path, desktop path, and documents path. I have tried using with the automatically open and not. I have tried writing a tab delimited and comma delimited file. Does anyone have ideas I haven't yet tried?
