Performance maximums?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone noticed a decline in performance speed in relation to the number of databases running concurrently? Also, is there a suggested limit to the number of fields on one db (as far as performance is concerned)?

The issues of number of open databases and number of fields in a database don't tend to be the ones that limit performance. There are hard limits (e.g. FM server 5 allows 125 open files and 250 users). Performance vs. number of fields seems to depend most of what type of fields and how they are displayed. Lots of summary fields on a layout with a large found set significantly degrades peformance. Files with 350 fields can still exhibit very good performance. The biggest performance hits on the number of files is the time it takes to open all of them! -bd

      I have published my database using CDML pages and I want each web address field to act as a link witch goes directly to the address contained in the field. Example of the HTML code on the search results page:
      [FMP-FIELD: email] *how can I link this field to act as "mailto://(value in the field)"

      [FMP-FIELD:web-address] *how can I link this to act as "http://(value in the field)"
      Any help will be highly appreciated the dead line for these pages were yesterday and I need to get these features online as soon as possible. Thanks...

      Dear all:
      I am facing the following problem: I am setting up a www-interface using CDML for the first time. I get the behavior I want, and everything works fine.
      But there's one big question: In the CDML reference, I cannot find any tags that allow authentication of users using the FM-database built-in access privileges.
      Any ideas?
      Cheers,
      Ron
