How to Improve NPrinting Connection Generation Performance - Best Practices

Common Symptom:

  • Connections fail to generate in NPrinting


  • NPrinting: All versions


How to Improve NPrinting Connection Generation Performance and Mitigate Connection failures:

  • Copy, then reduce the QVW to a data set necessary for generating reports, i.e. such that it is *500 mb or less for example.
  • Remove any charts or other unnecessary for reporting purposes. This will also reduce the size of the QVW.
  • Remove any alternate states, triggers - sheet and document, and the list box property 'only one selected', Variables using as selection values/critera on the QV desktop as well as Input Boxes. (These items are NOT supported with NPrinting On Demand)
  • If the reporting QVW contains several containers, remove any reporting charts from the containers. 
  • Try connecting to the document directly instead of via QVP. Performance may be improved with a direct connection particularly if network connectivity is limited or under duress. (do not take this step with On Demand Connections). 
  • Ensure that the NPrinting Engine Computer is sufficiently provisioned with RAM and CPU to be aligned with the scale of usage. If RAM and CPU are maxed out regularily, please add these resources as needed

*500 MB is just a reference value. Performance may vary depending on actual machine resources and complexity of the QVW or QVF document/application.
