WORKERS

Syntax: WORKERS nn

where nn is a number from 1–100.

This option is not related to or affected by the DBEngine WORKERS setting.

This option enables you to set the total number of Worker stacks that can be active at one time. Each Server Accessory Worker stack enables one DATABridge Client to retrieve information. So, if you want five DATABridge Clients to be able to connect to the Server Accessory simultaneously, set the Server Accessory WORKERS option to 5.

When Enterprise Server is in “browse” mode (that is, it is initiated by users for viewing the various servers and sources), it may use several Workers. Generally, Enterprise Server will use one Worker for each source the user is actively browsing. Therefore, you may want to set the number of WORKERS to a large value, such as 20.

You can change this setting at run time by using the AX WORKERS command AX TIMES. See Server Accessory Commands.

Each Worker’s task name includes an ON clause identifying the remote workstation by either its IP address or host name. You can view this information by viewing active entries. If you are using guardfiles, you can enter the remote workstation’s ID into your guardfile. This enables you to allow specific Workers to access specific databases.

You can also determine the name of the remote workstation by using the AX STATUS command.
