New network layer update

4D Tech mailing list
We flipped the switch on our production server at midnight this morning and ran all day. We peaked at 614 simultaneous users and probably between 4000 and 4500 processes.

We had no performance alarms trigger and had no complaints from end users about speed.  Early indications are that the server is making much better use of available CPU resources (cores), and that triggers are more responsive due to the reduced load on "Core 0".

4D/4D Server 16.3 HF2 build 221345. 64-bit Windows server (Server 2012), 32-bit Mac clients (macOS 10.12.6 and 10.13.4) and 32-bit Windows clients (Windows Server 2008R2 x64).

I gather that if this continues for a few weeks, that you will switch to 64bit clients?

Re: New network layer update

4D Tech mailing list
We plan to upgrade to 64-bit this summer. Not sure which version yet... probably stick with 16.3 HF2 through the end of the year since it's so solid.

Is anyone out there running ALP v10 on 64-bit Mac clients using the old API? If so, how was the transition?
