n is an integer in the range 0—64. The default value is 50.


nlstab is the number of NLS collation tables for which to allocate when InterSystems IRIS® data platform starts up. This parameter refers to loadable national collation tables and does not include built-in collations.

Changing This Parameter

On the Advanced Memory page of the Management Portal (System Administration > Configuration > Additional Settings > Advanced Memory), in the nlstab row, select Edit. Enter a number of tables.

Instead of using the Management Portal, you can change nlstab in the Config.configOpens in a new tab class (as described in the class reference) or by editing the CPF in a text editor (as described in Editing the Active CPF).
