The VWnotify service takes the xml files that are in ViewDrop folder and to the tasks that are described in xml could be things like publishing projects or building cubes.
Our VWnotify are getting to slow now. Some days when reports are due: In two hours it can fill up with 300 xml files. Then it takes to long to process them. They ar not process until 8 hours later. Our MS Projectserver installation is farily large. We have 1500 users 800 projects. We have the databaseserver (sqlserver 2005) on a separate server. We are planning to move the Analysis cubes on a separate server as well. The servers have each two proc and 4 Gigabyte ram.
I have read that the VWnotify service could be installed on another server. Once VWnotify is on a separate server its priority could also be raised.
I have read that for example here:
So what are the steps and configuration to install and run MS Project servers 2003 VWNotify on a separate windows 2003 server? Has anyone tryed it?
