Application Development with PAS for OpenEdge : Design and Implementation Considerations : Primary performance considerations

Primary performance considerations

There are three fundamental performance reasons for implementing an application using PAS for OpenEdge:
*To minimize network traffic by putting data processing closer to the database
*To offload resource-intensive processing tasks to a machine more capable of executing the tasks
*To support critical business functions for a maximum client load across the Internet
These three points can work together to provide maximum performance benefits. The following sections discuss each point separately.
* Minimizing network traffic
* Off loading resource-intensive processing tasks
* Choosing an application model
* Setting the number of multi-session agents, sessions, and connections
* Choosing a transaction model
* Using load balancing
