System Parameters

System parameters are global parameters for the installation. These parameters defines the behavior in a wide range of areas like Background jobs, Reporting and User Assistance.

All system parameters:

Parameter Category Behavior
Logging of background processes Background Jobs Logging of background processes. Default value is OFF.
Cleanup age limit in days for
completed background jobs
Background Jobs The age of completed background jobs to be removed by cleanup processes. Default value is 7 (days). (Note: Background jobs marked as "Exclude From Cleanup" will not be removed.)
Scheduled tasks process startup Background Jobs The values are ON/OFF and defines if the scheduled tasks process is started or not. Default value is ON.

Proxy Server used for HTTP requests
HTTP Sets the proxy to be used for requests of the HTTP or other protocols, excluding those for hosts that belong to the domain specified in "List of hosts and domains for which no proxy should be used". The proxy may include an optional TCP/IP port number at which the proxy server listens. The syntax is [http://]host[:port][/], for example, www-proxy.my-company.com:80. If the port is not specified for the proxy, port 80 is assumed. Default value is "*" (no proxy).

If the port number is specified, the no-proxy restriction is only applied to the request at the port of the particular domain or host, for example, corp.my-company.com, eng.my-company.com:80. When no_proxy_domains is NULL and the proxy is set, all requests go through the proxy. When the proxy is not set, UTL_HTTP sends requests to the target Web servers directly.

Default value is OFF.
Replication process restartup interval
(seconds)
Replication Controls the replication background process interval between wake-ups of the process. The process will sleep for the specified number of seconds before checking for a new row in the replication queue. The replication background process creates a connectivity message and place it in the connectivity outbox. The message will be processed by the connectivity outbox process. This means that the Connectivity Outbox process available parameter needs to be ON in order for connectivity to process the message. Default value is 30 (medium restart)
Cleanup age limit in days for replicated

Maximum allowed XML size for Report Designer reports (KB)
Reporting This parameter controls the size of the XML data, to prevent the out of memory crashes in middle tier. This limitation is checked before formatting the report from Report Formatter and if the memory consumption exceeds the allowed values, appropriate messages are shown to the user. The default values is 0 (zero), which is meaning that there is no limit.
Breakpoint XML size for when to format Report Designer reports in memory or using disk storage (kB)
Reporting This parameter controls the Disc Cache. With it, you can make sure that small reports are handled in memory without being swapped out to disc. Disc Cache will slow the PDF generation down by 30%. However large reports needs to be swapped out to disc in order to save memory. The parameter sets the limit of XML data size (Kb). If the data is larger than this limit, the Formatting Processor (FOP) will use Disc Cache. A good setting for this is 100kB. This is also the default.
