MSB740 Taking too LOng

MSB740 Taking too LOng

This batch program just takes to long and seems to be taking longer with the increase in the size of file MSF740. Is there no way of solving this archiving? and how is this done?

RE: MSB740 Taking too LOng

What frequency schedule do you run MSB740? How much data do you generate?

We run MSB740 on a weekly basis for 19 work groups. there's quite a number of PM works generated each week. We don't encounter a slowdown in the generation and printing process.  We tried customized the report printing, tailor fitted to the comapany standard a fancy style.


RE: MSB740 Taking too LOng

MSB740 runs for a work group with is a key to the MSF740 table.  It shouldn't take too long to run.  You don't say which platform/database etc but I'll assume it's ORACLE.  Have your DBA check the indexes on MSF740 - the program will run without them but will have to do a table scan which is very slow.  

Another thing to look at is MSH74A - which removes uncommitted MST's.  MSX740 - when did you last run that?

We have several hundred work groups with over 5 million rows on MSF740 with the MSB740's only taking a couple of minutes each.  

If you do run MSX740 make sure it's run after hours as unlike the other Xref programs this program removes ALL the cross references before re-creating them.
