A published EASAP may be preloaded on an EASAP Server to shorten the time between when a User selects an EASAP and the time when the EASAP opens in a browser.
Preload mainly targets Excel Server EASAP performance. Opening times should be shorter as the preloaded instance will already have allocated a free Excel process allocated to the EASAP prior to a User opening the EASAP. A remote Excel Server will
Once the number of free Excel processes drops below a certain threshold the preloader will wait until more processes are free before allocating these scarce resources to preload another EASAP. Thus on an Excel Server under heavy load (ie. with few free Excel processes) the preload capability will have limited utility.
The example above will use the most recently Published version of the EASAP.
Once the two files above have been modified, restart the EASA Server.
Fewer 'Free Processes' will appear under: EASA→Administrator→Configure→Compute Servers under Excel Servers.
Other operational properties of the preloader may be adjusted (below), though in most cases the default settings are fine.
The preloader dynamically decides if there are enough free Excel processes to allocate one to preload an EASAP.
The above setting will allow 30 percent of the number of free Excel threads at a particular time to be allocated to preloading EASAP's.
This setting is dynamic.
