Performance Considerations

Although Fileshare reduces the number of requests made across the network for COBOL I/O, some types of data file access benefit more than others. The following areas affect Fileshare's ability to improve the speed of accessing remote data:

Any speed improvements are therefore very specific to individual applications and become more pronounced as more Fileshare Clients concurrently access the same data files.

We recommend you always use the synchronous mode of operation for best performance with Fileshare. Async-mode should be considered as being for development purposes only, and production installations should always use synchronous operation.
