Reload is fast, but Distribution is slow on large QVW
Hello QlikView Community!!
Need help understanding how the Distribution Service works. I have a 2GB QVW file that reloads under 3 minutes. This is perfectly acceptable for our purpose. However when the publisher attempts to distributes this file, it takes close to 1 hour to distribute. Both the Server and the Publisher is on the same Windows 2008 server with 190GB ram (12 core). I don't believe hardware is the issue. We have enough memory to support.
By looking at the log file, it seems as thought the publisher is writing in increments via buffer to upload to a directory on the same physical server (end user document). If I manually copy and past the 2GB file its very fast, but letting the publisher do the work, its very slow.
Could we increase the buffer size and how would I do this? Any other tips to increase performance of the DistributionService? I've already set the QV Engine to 9 as recommended.

In theory could we do this.
1. For the first time setting up a QVW on access point, distribute it on server.
2. Once that is done and the proper category is created on access point, the proper qvw.Meta file is already generated.
3. Modify my reload task, so that instead of distributing it over to server, distribute it to folder. This would just overwrite the QVW and not the .META file which is okay since I don't excpect much content to change in the qvwMeta file
