RDBMS Recommendations

This topic applies to ArcEditor and ArcInfo only.

To reduce the chance of reaching database-specific limits while using Workflow Manager, it is recommended that the following settings in the ArcSDE SERVER_CONFIG table within your RDBMS be changed. Please see the SDE documentation for more details on these parameters.

  1. MAXBLOBSIZE: This value should be increased to accommodate larger files being stored within the database. This is applicable to any attachments and MXDs that you will be using in Workflow Manager. The default SDE value for this is 1 mb, which is typically exceeded when using the application. For example, you can increase the default value to 100 MB.
  2. MAXBUFFSIZE: This value should be increased so that data transfer can be carried out without error. For example, you can increase this to 128 Kilobytes.
