The CONVERTVPS configuration parameter

The CONVERTVPS parameter limits the maximum number of VPs used for convert threads. This parameter limits the number of VPs that the onpload client uses so that onpload does not monopolize system resources.

Setting CONVERTVPS too large can cause performance degradation. Do not set more converter VPs than there are physical CPUs. If the number of CONVERTVPS exceeds the number of physical CPUs, system resources are consumed with no performance benefit.

On single-CPU computers, increasing this parameter has a negative effect on performance.

Default value
Single-processor computer: 1

Multiprocessor computer: 50 percent of physical CPUs

Range of values
From 1 to the number of physical CPUs
