[SOLVED] Running DQS / DQC with /affinity Option

I am attempting to start the Data Quality Server using the ability to set Affinity using the start_tomcat.bat file that's included with the installation.

I tried adding 'start /affinity 7' in several different places through the maze of batch files.

Putting it in the start_tomcat.bat file succeeded in making the Tomcat 'Application' --> java.exe process report that it's running on only three processors. However, when I attempt to run a plan against the server at that point, I receive an error stating that the license is only good for 3 processors while my server has 16.

I then tried placing it different places through the different batch files with no success.

Finally, I tried using the 'service.bat' file, installing the whole thing as a service so that I Could assign the number of processors to use that way. That install fails.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

sorry for the slow reply but are you running the plan in DQS or via the command line?

if you're running it through DQS you can create a bat file that contains:

C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe /c "start /affinity 3 C:\ibi\DQC_8\dqc64.exe"

and it should resolve your problem.

“/affinity 3” denotes the CPU affinity mask, in this case for CPUs 0 and 1
see (scroll down a bit for the mask):

Unfortunately, I'm running it through the command line.

That's where all of the confusion comes in due to the .BAT file scripting.

I'm going to submit a ticket today, I'll post my results back here when I get them.

Thanks!!

After submitting a ticket and getting my resolution, you shouldn't have to mess around w/ the processor throttling.

Unless I inadvertently left an affinity line in one of the batch files (which I'm 99% certain I didn't), it's completely solved by the license you receive.

It would appear to me that if given the proper license it will automatically throttle to the proper number of processors w/o any additional work on the part of the customer.

If my information is incorrect here, would someone kindly correct it?
