FAQ: Does AIX have settings that can be modified to improve performance of ArcSDE?

Question

Does AIX have settings that can be modified to improve performance of ArcSDE?

Answer

Yes. One is tcp_nodelay.

As the root user, execute the ifconfig command to set tcp_nodelay to 1.

Code:
ifconfig en0 tcp_nodelay 1

This will improve performance when serving data to non-AIX platforms. If loading data from a different platform, it is recommended this be set to 0.

Refer to the AIX documentation for any questions regarding this setting.
