When GlobalCapture needs to get information about a field, list values, template data or other information during processing, it has to reach out to the Square9API GlobalSearch API or GlobalCapture API to get the catalog information.  There is a way to enable "Field Caching" which will save a copy of the field catalog in memory for a specified amount of timeThis data can be cached in memory to avoid polling of an API.  If the Engine encounters a scenario where it is interacting with a field, list value, template it does not have stored in memory it will reach out to the API to get the field information and then cache it.  Doing this can increase performance and eliminate the back and forth from the Capture Engine to the API.

Step-by-step guide

  1. Navigate to your GlobalCapture Engine directory, by default this is C:\GetSmart\CaptureServices\GlobalCapture_1.
  2. Open GlobalCapture.exe.config in a text editor of your choice
  3. In the <appSettings> section add the following



    Code Block
    <add key="ListTimeout" value="120" />
    <add key="EngineAllocationTimeout" value="120" />
    <add key="TemplateTimeout" value="120" />
    <add key="FieldTimeout" value="720"

  4. Restart the GlobalCapture_1 service# service, where # is the engine ID.


The field timeout value is values are in minutes, so 720 minutes = 12 hours



If you have multiple Capture Engines this will need to be performed on each one
