2020 Update Rollup 3

Environment VariablesPermanent link for this heading

As already mentioned, environment variables can be specified and determined via different methods. Many of the mentioned and described variables in this document can be used as command line parameters as well as in the process environment (the file system and the Microsoft Windows Registry are used for storing the process environment, therefore the same rules apply here).

It is important to be aware of the correct notation when using variables in the process environment or in the command line:

  • Entries in the process environment are written in capital letters, e.g. HOST.
  • If the variable is passed as parameter in the command line, the usage of a hyphen followed by the name using small letters is required: -host

DirectoriesPermanent link for this heading

Following variables define directory settings:

  • GLOBALDATADIR
    The path of the directory in this variable determines where data that is required for all users of the Fabasoft Folio Services on this machine can be stored. This directory is used as root directory for CASCACHEDIR, INSTALLDIR and STATICDIR, unless these variables are defined. The default value is /var/opt/fabasoft/cache on Linux systems and %ProgramData%\Fabasoft on Microsoft Windows.
  • CASCACHEDIR
    The path of the directory in this variable determines where the cache of the CAS areas is stored.
  • INSTALLDIR
    Path of the directory where files of software components can be stored during the installation.
  • STATICDIR
    Path of the directory where the static object model is stored.
  • LOCALDATADIR
    Path of the directory where data of the Fabasoft Folio Services can be stored.
    In a Microsoft Windows environment the default value is %ProgramData%\Fabasoft. On Linux systems it is /var/opt/fabasoft/cache. This directory is used as root directory for CACHEDIR and COMMITDIR and DOCDIR, unless these variables are defined.
  • CACHEDIR
    Path of the directory where the zero-downtime cache is stored.
  • COMMITDIR
    Path of the directory where the ID cache is stored.
  • DOCDIR
    Path of the directory where the cached contents are stored.
  • DIRECTORYSEPERATENAME
    This variable serves to save a string in the environment that is used to structure directories (e.g. CACHEDIR, COMMITDIR).
  • TEMPDIR
    Path of the directory where the temporary files are stored. The default value is /tmp/Fabasoft on Linux systems and %TEMP%\Fabasoft on Microsoft Windows.

PreparePermanent link for this heading

Following variables define installation settings:

  • CHECKINSTALLATION
    The value of this variable determines whether software components should be updated automatically or not.
    • YES
      Default value of this variable. Fabasoft Folio Kernel and software components are installed or updated and the value of the INSTALLDIR variable is set.
    • COMPONENTS
      Only software components are updated automatically. This mode is used if the trace kernel was installed.
    • NO
      Neither the Fabasoft Folio Kernel nor the software components are updated. In this case all .DLL files have to be in one directory or found via the system environment variable PATH.
    • KERNEL
      Only the Fabasoft Folio Kernel is updated automatically.
    • SIMPLE
      Neither the Fabasoft Folio Kernel nor the software components are updated. The “dll” files can be located in the component directory (environment variable INSTALLDIR).
    • SEARCH
      Fabasoft Folio Kernel and software components are updated where they are found in the local system and if they are not found they are installed in the default directory.
  • The following environment variables serve as strings transferred during an automatic software update:
    • COOPREP_BOOTSTRAP
    • COOPREP_COMMAND
    • COOPREP_INSTALL

    During the installation of a Fabasoft software product single software components can be chosen. This means that a complete installation does not have to be executed.
    However, if the value of the variable COMPLETE is set to TRUE, all selected software products are installed completely.
  • EXTERNALUPGRADE (TRUE/FALSE)
    This variable determines whether the file cooupgr*.dll is used during an upgrade of the Fabasoft Folio Kernel or not.
  • UPDATE (TRUE/FALSE)
    Repeated registration of files of the software components so that controls are entered in the Microsoft Windows Registry. This parameter is also used when performing a software update. The option can be specified as command line argument to the cooprep utility.

  • LOCALOBJECTSLIMIT
    With the help of this variable it can be defined how many objects are deposited in the Commonly Used list (in objects of the class Working environment).
    Default value: 1000
  • LOCALOBJECTSLEVEL
    This variable defines the limit value which determines whether the Commonly Used list (in objects of the class Working Environment) is resorted when objects are reused or if the order is retained.
    Basically, objects are added at the end of the list. If the maximum number of objects in the object list is already reached, the first object is deleted from the list. If the list contains less than LOCALOBJECTSLEVEL objects, and an object which is already in the list is reused there is no resorting. Otherwise, if the list is already filled with more objects than defined in the variable LOCALOBJECTSLEVEL, and an object placed in the first LOCALOBJECTSLEVEL objects is reused, then this object is ranked backwards.
    Default value: 500
  • LOADCOMPLETE
    This variable defines if the Fabasoft Folio Kernel loads all attributes of an object or only a certain set of standard attributes which means a second RPC is needed if other attributes are requested.
    Default value: true
  • LOADCOMPLETELIMIT
    This variable defines how many objects are loaded completely if access via object pointer property.
    Default value: 250

    Default value: true

QueriesPermanent link for this heading

To arrange searching efficiently, values in the following variables are considered:

  • QUERYRESTRLEVEL
    When executing a search, the objects which are found are passed to the client and a check of the ACL is executed for each single object (if the user has the right to search for this object). Depending on the rights that are allocated in the ACL, the objects are either shown or refused for the concerned user. If the number of checked objects exceeds the value in the variable QUERYRESTRLEVEL, an additional check of the search’s efficiency is executed. (see QUERYRESTRFACTOR).
    Default value: 5000
  • QUERYRESTRFACTOR
    After the number of objects defined in the variable QUERYRESTRLEVEL is checked, additionally the efficiency of the search is checked. This works with following formula:
    displayed objects * QUERYRESTRFACTOR < refused objects
    If the number of objects that a user is not allowed to search for is bigger than the number of objects that a user is allowed to search for multiplied by the value of the variable QUERYRESTRFACTOR, an error message is displayed.
  • QUERYSUBQUERYMAX
    When a full-text search or a search containing a sub-query is carried out (for example, a query containing a SELECT statement within another SELECT statement or sub-queries for the optimization of back-links or referenced properties), and the number of matches is greater than the specified value in this variable then the Fabasoft Folio Kernel generates the error message QLPERR_INEFFICIENTSUBQUERY. The results that are returned until this error is generated can however be subsequently used.
    Default value: 50000
  • QUERYTHREADMAX
    This variable defines the maximum number of parallel COO Service queries triggered by a single Fabasoft Folio query.
    Default value: 4

    Default value: 600 s
  • CACHECLEANUPTHRESHOLDTIME
    If the Fabasoft Folio Kernel performs an aggressive cache cleanup, a warning can be created in the event log after a defined duration. This variable contains the time interval after which the event log entry is created. Long and recurring periods of aggressive cache cleanups indicate a cache size limit that could be too small for the workload.
    Default value: 60 s
  • CACHEMODIFY (TRUE/FALSE)
    If this variable is set to FALSE, information in the client cache cannot be modified.
  • CACHEPERSIST (TRUE/FALSE)
    If this value is set to FALSE, the client cache can be read and modified, but the modifications are not saved.
  • CACHESIZE
    This entry stores the value of objects that can be saved in the cache at maximum. The default value of the variable CACHESIZE for the Fabasoft Folio Kernel is 20000 objects.

  • SIMPLELOGIN (TRUE/FALSE)
    The identification of users when logging in to the Fabasoft product environment works with different methods. If SIMPLELOGIN is set to TRUE, only the Microsoft Windows account is considered.
