Specifies the paging size for events delivered to a single workflow instance. For each request, the events are streamed out 100 at a time.

Batch size is the number of events processed for a single workflow instance, which can have many events queued at the same time. Throttle will override batch size; if the workflow instance cannot be started or restarted because there are too many instances running across all front-end Web servers, none of the events will be fetched, regardless of the batch size.


stsadm -o setproperty

-propertyname workflow-eventdelivery-batchsize

-propertyvalue <A valid integer>

[-url] <https://server_name>

The syntax for the getproperty operation is:

stsadm -o getproperty

propertyname workflow-eventdelivery-batchsize

[-url] <https://server_name>


You can substitute -pn for -propertyname and -pv for -propertyvalue.


The following table shows possible values.

Name Value


Gets or sets the name of the property.


A valid integer. For example, if there are 200 jobs in the queue, but the value is set to 100, only the first 100 jobs will be executed by the timer service.

The default value is 100.


If the workflow-eventdelivery-throttle number is reached, any items that were throttled will be put back on the queue.


Typically, a path to the URL of the Web application, in the form http://server_name.


To set the number of workflows job to be processed by the timer service to 125, use the following syntax:

stsadm -o setproperty -pn workflow-eventdelivery-batchsize -pv "125"

To view the current setting of the workflow-eventdelivery-batchsize property, use the following syntax:

stsadm -o getproperty -pn workflow-eventdelivery-batchsize
