4 WAYS TO BOOST
JD EDWARDS PERFORMANCE
APPLICATION MONITORING AND TESTING
EFFECTIVE DATABASE MANAGEMENT
FINE TUNING, OPTIMIZATION, AND FUNCTIONALITY
Testing of applications and systems can often be overlooked, delayed, delegated to
untrained resources, or eliminated entirely. End-to-end performance and scalability
testing for JD Edwards—whether it’s pre-deployment, in stream, or on a periodic
basis—can help you predict and resolve performance issues. Load testing provides
deep diagnostics information and suggestions for remediating issues, including those
leading back to the database. A monitoring and load testing tool can also reduce manual
functional testing, cut test script creation time in half, and eliminate weeks from a
project’s testing schedule.
Application performance problems often lead back to the database, which can be the
nastiest of bottlenecks—and the most difficult to find amongst log files, code, and
architecture. Senior DBAs have virtually seen it all and can ultimately help save you time
and money when considering opportunity costs. The best database management is
expert-level and proactive, rather than entry-level and reactive.
How can JD Edwards do more for you? When it comes to configuration and optimization,
the smallest of strategic tweaks can often make a very big difference. Recent
enhancements improve the navigation and interface, enable quick access to relevant
information and tasks, offer drag-and-drop options, and drive end-user productivity and
satisfaction through personalization. Dozens of applications, accelerators, and
integrated processes offer untapped potential that could greatly enable your business.
And when strategic projects and initiatives emerge, such as external integrations (e.g.,
Salesforce), globalization, and inter-connecting systems, JD Edwards’ Service Oriented
Architecture (SOA) becomes indispensable.
SYSTEM PERFORMANCE MAINTENANCE PLAN
It is essential in the JD Edwards system architecture to have a well thought out, tried and
tested performance maintenance plan. This includes activities such as monthly, full
package builds, purging of submitted job queues, subsystem queues and system
temporary files. This frees up valuable disk space and memory for more critical
processing. ManageForce can assist you with developing a plan specific to your
installation of JD Edwards.
