FAQ: The ReportClient freezes and slows down my computer. What could be the reason? / How can I limit the amount of data read by the ReportClient?

By default, the ReportClient will read metadata sets in batches of up to 10000. This limit of 10000 may be too high for the available resources.

To change this limit, proceed as follows:

  1. Open the file Client.ini (Path: vdClientArchive/VD$A/Configuration/Client.ini).

  2. Select the section:
    [ReportClient]

  3. If this section already exists, search for the key:
    5540=<Number>

  4. If the section does not already exist, insert it as follows:If the section does not already exist, insert it as follows:
    [ReportClient]
    5540=<Number>

  5. Enter a new limit, e.g.
    5540=7500

  6. Save the change

  7. Close the file

If you work with the ReportClient after the above change was made and if at the same time the number of data sets exceeds the limit that was specified by you, a message will inform you about the issue.
