You notice that Application Server (96.010.00) requires an extended length of time to process each request.


A large number of application server log records exist, which causes a delay when application server tries to read from the appsrvlog table.


Limit the Application Server Log size. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Open Microsoft Dynamics SL.
  2. Select the Foundation module.
  3. In the Application Server, select Server Administration.
  4. Select an application server and right-click and select properties.
  5. In the properties window, select the Management tab.
  6. Populate the settings under Log Management.

Recommended settings are 1000 - 2000 logs and 21 days.
