Thanks for sharing, I was hoping someone would actually add some valuable information about this setting.
Workorders have been present in qlikview for a while, I guess is how the QlikView Management Service informs the Distribution Service when it has to execute each task. Workorders are stored in C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\ManagementService\Workorders.
You can actually force a workorder refresh here
But I had no idea about the chunksize setting, what happens if you set it to 200? will tasks work faster? what does that setting control?
Daniel – thanks for the response. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to test setting it to 200. I will add that the setting of 100 was default for my install. Also, when support mentioned they found ‘various errors’ in previous versions of QV when that value was set to high, they meant that tasks would fail with various error messages. I would guess that if you set that number too high you would start to experience the same symptoms. It would be interesting to see if you could increase performance, as you asked, by increasing the value. If you find out more please share.
