Tom,

Your memory is a little low, but a server can handle the memory management
better than a W98 type machine.. The other thing that we are finding is
that by installing browser onto a Citrix or terminal server server, the end
PC is not as important.. The server handles all of the processing, which is
nice if you have 40-50 PCs that would need to be upgraded. Also, if you are
working remotely, Citrix makes the performance of the browswer much more
usable as it only sends screen shots that have changed to the user, not the
actual data.. Let the locally attached server do the work and just display
it to the user.

Also, server side installations make keeping users current with updates
easier..

Just my 2cents.

A question to all respondants to this thread...  Have you installed Browser
as a local-machine install -or- a server-based install?

I am in the process of deploying Browser (R6) to a population of 60 users
(approx) and have a handfull of users connecting to a server (Dell
PowerEdge
2550, single 1Ghz PIII, 512Mb RAM) and the balance as local-installs.
Additional note, this machine also serves the FRx Report Writer for the
concurrent deployment of IFM (also R6).

Should I expect to respond to 'Out-of-Memory' errors on the server
(affecting all current log-ins)?

Thanks-in-advance for your responses.

To all who have replied (both thru the list and "off-line") -

Thanks! Export to text file worked, although slowly. I have tried changing
my swap file (virtual memory), but it is taking so long to open anything
that I'm changing it back to the original settings. Besides, the end-user,
and most of our machines, has Win98...

We're also looking at 256-mb memory. As one of you observed, memory is
cheap
right now. (Although there is the cost of installing...)

       Thanks again for sharing your knowledge. -- Joan

To all -

Sigh. I just got off the phone with MAPICS support. We have an end-user who
has set up a view and subset over MO Operations (we're using Browser and
EPDM at Rel 4 - MO Operations is a look-only card). If he tries to copy
this
view and subset combination to clipboard to load into Excel, his PC locks
up
with an "out of memory" error.

Mine does, too. I have 256 mb memory. At MAPICS support, their PC didn't
lock up, but it took over 15 minutes to copy to the clipboard. They have
512
mb memory. The problem with this view is that it includes two "calculated"
fields, both of which are essential to the task my end-user is trying to
accomplish. Views without calculated fields don't cause a problem.

Just how much memory DOES the Browser need to work? I know the Rel 6
documentation says 128 mb (we've ordered and are in the process of
installing to get all Browser-using PC's up to 128), but what do you REALLY
need?

Anyone else, especially on Rel 6, having out-of-memory problems with
Browser? How about with some of the new Browser functions - MM, OBPM, CSM,
etc.? Any words of wisdom?
