Considerations for Performing Large Transactions - Intergraph Smart 3D - Administration

Administration & Configuration

When you perform large transactions in Global Workshare, you need to take the following precautions:

  • Perform large transactions during off-peak hours when system resources are not as heavily loaded.

  • Break large transactions into smaller chunks. For example, use smaller select sets when deleting structure imported from TEKLA.

  • Delete small sets of drawings or other objects rather than deleting a large set all at once.

The following types of transactions can become large:

  • Performing Model Data Reuse tasks.

  • Performing Database Integrity tasks. Use the following workflow:

    1. Run DBI on the Host from the Project Management task.

    2. Run DBClean on the Host from a Smart 3D session.

    3. Wait for the transactions to complete.

    4. Run DBClean at each Satellite location. Wait for the transactions to complete at one location before processing the next location.

  • Performing database maintenance. In particular, deleting database objects that users have deleted from the model can create a transaction with several million records. This can take days to replicate.

  • Deleting existing TEKLA data before importing.

  • Deleting large numbers of drawings. For example, deleting a snap-in of isometrics.

  • Deleting large numbers of orthographic drawings.

  • Deleting, copying, or moving large numbers of objects while inside the model.
