Tuning standard procedure libraries
The following table lists the startup parameters you use to tune standard procedure libraries for a session.
Table 22. Startup parameters for tuning procedure libraries
Startup parameter
Suggested use
PROLIB Memory (-plm)
If you have a large standard library or a memory shortage, use this parameter to allocate a 512-byte cache for the library's directory instead of loading the entire directory into memory. This parameter slows the speed of library access but increases available memory.
PROLIB Swap (-pls)
Use this parameter to allow swapping from a standard library to a r-code swap file. OpenEdge typically reads library-stored r-code from the library instead of swapping to a r-code swap file. However, when using a library over a network, swapping to a r-code swap file might be faster than accessing the remote library.
If you specify the PROLIB Memory (-plm) and PROLIB Swap (-pls) startup parameters with memory-mapped libraries, OpenEdge ignores them.
For more information about these startup parameters, see OpenEdge Deployment: Startup Command and Parameter Reference.
