Configuration - Calculation

Developer
Futurama
Futurama-Formulas
Futurama-Webservice
Futurama-Console

Version: 5.3.0 +

Applicable to: Futurama Batch and Futurama WebService

Description

When you are using Futurama Website (Futurama 18.04+), Futurama Webservice or Futurama Export (either by using Futurama Server or by using Futurama Console) you can speed up the calculations by using compiled code. When you use the “Compile” option Futurama will generate your Futurama model to C# code and execute that code for the calculation process. Depending on the calculations this can make a big difference in speed.

Be aware that when you use the Compile setting Futurama generates code for maximum efficiency. That means that the standard check for invalid recursions is bypassed. If the combination of your application model and your input data has an invalid recursion, this might lead to an application crash. If that occurs we advise you to change the setting to Off. Then you will be able to analyse the problem and fix it. After that you can reset the calculationmode to compile.

Configuration

Settings

Within the <configuration> element (of the config of either Futurama Website (Futurama 18.04+), Futurama Webservice or Futurama Batch of Futurama Editor) the next code has to be included:

<configSections>
	<sectionGroup name="futuramaSettings">
		<section name="calculation" type="ActuIT.Futurama.Config.CalculationSection, ActuIT.Futurama.Engine, 
		Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null"/>
	</sectionGroup>
</configSections>

Next to this code, also within the <configuration> element the next code has to be included:

<futuramaSettings>
	<calculation compilationMode="Off" numProcessors="4" />
</futuramaSettings>

The futuramaSettings element is the general part for more configuration settings. Within this element the calculation element is set.

Explanation

Within the calculation element some other elements and their attributes can be set. Below the explanation of these elements and attributes.

compilationMode

This property can be “Compile” or “Off“

numProcessors (Futurama 18.02+)
