Optimize System Access Speed

Optimize System Access Speed

This module is only for RollMaster customers working from an onsite server.


Over time, the data on the hard drive for the RollMaster System can become fragmented, resulting in a slowing down of the processing speed of the system. This module will reorganize the data in sequential order, which will improve the data access speed. Currently, the update programs are prompting Users to run this module once a new update is loaded. However, it can and should be run manually on a quarterly basis to keep the system running at peak condition. This module should be run after normal business hours, as it could take several hours to finish processing depending on the amount of data in the system. It should also be run from the main server and no other Users should be logged onto the system.  


This module also has a feature to reset User locks on system files. User locks can be created when Users exit out of the system incorrectly or are kicked out during power outages. Instead of rebooting the system, you can access this module to try and correct any User lock problems. When you enter this module, the screen will appear as follows:



Type an “O” to Optimize System Data Files. The system will perform internal procedures and prompt the following when it has completed the process: Type Any Key. Type any key to return to the System Maintenance menu. If you access this module to Reset User Locks On Files, type an “R” to run that program. The system will perform internal procedures and prompt the following when it has completed the process: Type Any Key. Type any key to return to the System Maintenance menu.
