If you are running Vantage on a multi-core machine or a machine with multiple CPUs, Vantage can take advantage of the extra CPUs resources to improve the speed of importing and reporting. The Performance tab enables you to configure the multi-processing options.
Use multi-processing This checkbox turns on multi-processing support.
Maximum concurrent threads This setting indicates how many threads Vantage should use when processing records. WebSpy recommends setting this to twice the number of CPUs or logical cores in your machine. For example, if you're running on quad core machine, set this value to 8. If you're running a machine with two quad core CPUs set this value to 16.
Show performance statistics on the status bar These options display the appropriate performance indicator in Vantage's status bar. Storage throughput displays the number of records written to or read from the Storage per second.
