Tuning conversion performance for File Viewer

The converter applications for File Viewer make it possible for users to view files online. You might want to increase the number converter instances if your deployment involves many users.

About this task

It is best to limit the number of instances to the value that corresponds to your processor. However, it is possible to increase the number of instances to up to twice the processor number. Perform the following steps on the Conversion server:


  1. On deployment manager, open the following file:
    • ${WAS_ROOT}/profiles/Dmgr01/config/cells/${CellName}/IBMDocs-config/conversion-config.json
  2. Locate the line containing: poolsize
  3. Change the value to the number of instances up to twice the number of processors on the host.
  4. Save and close the file.
  5. Restart the WebSphere® Application server instance on the Conversion server.
