Adding an Archive Node

There could be several reasons why you might need to add an archive server. Perhaps an archive job is taking too long to process. You want to process more data at a time and you want to be more efficient with time and resources. Accounting for a regular workload, a server is typically good for up to 1,000 users. Each server will comfortably handle 10 threads, or accounts, at a time. Therefore, to process 100 accounts, you need to run 10 batches of 10 nodes. To scale up, you will need to add archive nodes according to these metrics.

If you experience a slowness in searching, this could be due to loads placed on the Index server. Steps for adding an Index server are covered in the next section. In either case, contact IPRO Support to assist with diagnosing the source of the slowness.
