With the usual caveat that one should analyze performance and know where

time trials of Infor month ends before/after. Smoking hot difference!
While it's true that, as supplied by Infor, the tables are not
journalled
we turned it on for every table to support HA.

Can anyone name any performance indicator which would indicate that this
product would help? Nothing comes to mind. However, putting it on was
very effective for me.

If you are ONLY doing audit journaling I doubt it would help much if at
all.

Since you are journaling every table however, YES. This option could
potentially help you a lot! Worth a try I would say!

We do not have this product. We do not do High Availability but we do
journal every table and have full audit journaling on. Would this still
help performance?

I've moved. I wasn't that impressed. But, it may be because I found
a
much bigger payback. Are you journalling? If so, do you have Resource
ID Option Feature Description
5770SS1 42 5117 HA Journal Performance

Adding this made a phenomenally huge difference. Comes with usual 70
day key to try it out. Which, if you line up the install just right
will
cover two month ends to test it.

Has anyone moved to using SSD drives and if so have you seen any
significant performance improvement by doing so? We are not in need
of
additional space (running about 50%) and disk utilization (% busy) is
not
extremely high (10-15%). Wondering if a plan to migrate to SSD would
be
worthwhile.
