Problems with Auto Refresh feature
Created 2003-07-02 by Wajih-ur-Rehman
When I turn on the Auto Refresh feature, it seems that MonitorWare Console
has hung up. What's the problem?
The Auto Refresh feature allows the view to
be updated after the specified interval of time. One thing that must be kept in
mind regarding the Auto Refresh feature is that if you have set a very large
value of the page size for a particular view and a very small time interval
after which the page should refresh, then the performance of the Auto Refresh
feature might not be good. The reason is that the previous records will not be
brought yet from the database when the time for the next refresh comes and then
it goes back to the database to fetch the fresh records once again. This will,
sort of, hang MonitorWare Console.
We strongly recommend using small page
values for the view for which you intend to use Auto Refresh feature so that the
above mentioned problem is not encountered.
