Disable synchronizing TCOMMIT with the corresponding journal write operation.


[Miscellaneous]    SynchCommit=n

n is either 1 (true) or 0 (false). The default value is 0.



This parameter has been retained for compatibility, but should not be used when building new applications.

Every TCOMMIT command requests a flush of the journal data involved in that transaction to disk. SynchCommit controls what happens at that point. When enabled (n = 1), TCOMMIT completes after the journal data write operation completes. If SynchCommit is not enabled, TCOMMIT completes without waiting for the write operation.

Changing This Parameter

On the Compatibility page of the Management Portal (System Administration > Configuration > Additional Settings > Compatibility), in the SynchCommit row, click Edit. Select SynchCommit to enable this setting.

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

To change this parameter for a single process only (as opposed to instance-wide), use the SynchCommit()Opens in a new tab method of the %SYSTEM.ProcessOpens in a new tab class. See the class reference for details.
