I take it that you are at least at R7.8 as this is a new object with R7.8.

With the redesign of IFM to IDF and renamed to Enterprise Financials when viewed or accessed using the IDF applications (PowerLink, SystemLink, NetLink, etc.), there are significant changes that have been and are being made to the application. It should also be noted that each PCM released will continue to change and enhance the applications.

When working in IFM green screen / EWP as transactions are posted there are several jobs that run that will keep the ledgers and summary files updated with current balances. Some of these jobs are unattached jobs, some are scheduled jobs and some are jobs run during requested processes. (i.e. extracts). As the IDF applications are architected differently, AND MOST IMPORTANT as improvements in the way the application works have been made by development many of these processes are being changed. That includes the PSTVU job. This job replaces the COM/IFM credit update job and adds a tremendous new set of functions. It is triggered by a number of different functions. (see solution 804598)

If you have IFM / EF (International Financial Management / Enterprise Financials) you should not hold this job for very long if at all. Your finance people will be working with inaccurate data. Think of it like this. I want to see the balance of an account (customer, vendor) and then drill down into that balance to see the transactions that make up the balance. (i.e. "let me see all the activity over 90 days old"). When they drill into the detail, if the PSTVU job is held, the detail will not sum to the balance total. (more so if it is an active account).

If your job is running all the time, this is normal. Most of the time it will be in a "wait" state. If it is truly consuming 35% of CPU then you either have a system that is undersized, a high volume of financial transactions that post to the personal ledgers (invoices, cash pmts, cash receipts) or you have not applied some of the PTF's that have corrected some of the issues (Check to see if SH86007 is released from testing yet.)

Subject: [MAPICS-L] PSVTUE - eFin U-Job

BODY { font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:12px;
We're looking for information about MAPICS job PSVTUE.
This job takes up 35% of our CPU and runs ALL THE TIME. We don't
know what it's for. We tried to get information from Infor but
although their help desk was semi-helpful, we didn't get enough
information to know if we should prevent this job from running
altogether, or how we could improve its performance, or limit its
appetite for processing millions of unknowable transactions.
Any help?
I can provide more information if there are any clarifying
