Advanced

On the Advanced tab, the QlikView Distribution Service (QDS) handling of the QlikView engine (QVB.exe) can be managed.

QlikView Engine

By default, when Distribution Groups are not activated, this section and the following settings are available.

  • Max number of simultaneous QlikView engines for distribution - The maximum number of simultaneous QlikView Batch instances (default 4).
  • Max number of simultaneous QlikView engines for administration - The maximum number of simultaneous QlikView Batch readers (default 20).

When a distribution group is activated this section is replaced by Cluster Node Settings.

Cloud Deployment

Defines the maximum number of simultaneous distributions of documents to a cloud deployment.

Max number of simultaneous Cloud Distributions

The maximum number of simultaneous distributions of documents to cloud. Default i 5.

If the number of document distributions to cloud exceeds what is defined in Max number of simultaneous Cloud Distribution, the cloud distribution tasks end up in Queued state. Other distributions, cloud distributions with documents excluded, will run as usual.

Section Access

When section access is defined in the documents, it may be necessary to configure a specific entry for the QDS to avoid it interfering with the work of the task. By default, the QDS will apply the section access associated to the Windows user under which the service run. This may be overridden at each task. If a default override is preferable, it can be defined by configuring the login credentials in the following text boxes:

User Name

To configure the user name, enter the desired credentials in this text box.

Password

To configure the password, enter the desired credentials in this text box.

Work Order

To send a work order to the designated QDS, click on the Send Work Order button.

Preload Source Document Administrators

Allows cache to be generated for users and groups of users assigned as document administrators. Cache generation can be scheduled or manually triggered.

Set schedule:

  • Never

  • Daily at a specific time defined in the format HH:MM.

    Note: If the daily execution already has been done and you change the time, changes will not apply until the next day.
  • Every # hours

Click the Load Doc Admins button manually generate cache.

The cache will exist in memory of the QlikView Management Service (QMS) until either is fulfilled:

  • The QlikView Management Service (QMS) is restarted.

  • The Load Doc Admins button is pressed again.

  • The schedule runs again.

Cluster Node Settings

When Distribution Groups are activated, this section provides QlikView Distribution Service (QDS) URL as well as lists the configuration defined in the DistributionGroupDefinition.xml file.

  • Number of Dedicated Engines - The number of dedicated QlikView Batch instances (default 0).
  • Run Dedicated Tasks Alone- Whether to run dedicated tasks alone or not (default false).
  • Dedicated Task Grace Time- If Run Dedicated Tasks Alone is set to Yesand this setting means that no regular task may be started by this QDS within number of minutes or less until the nearest dedicated task is scheduled (default 0).
