THE INFORMATION IN THIS ARTICLE APPLIES TO:
- EFT Server Enterprise version 6.4 and later
In EFT versions earlier than 7.0, Event Rule Timers default to a 1 MB thread stack size.
In EFT v7.0 and later, Event Rule Timers default to a 385KB thread stack size.
Some customers have a large number (>250) of Timers that simply call an AWE task. Testing showed that it is safe to reduce the Timer stack size to 64KB to reduce memory usage.
The following registry value will set the stack size in bytes:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\GlobalSCAPE Inc.\EFT Server 4.0
64-bit: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\GlobalSCAPE Inc.\EFT Server 4.0
Create the DWORD: "TimerStackSize"
If no value is set, then the EFT default size of 385 KB is used.
If the value is zero, the system default of 1 MB is used.
Setting the value to 65536 will result in a 64KB stack size.
