12 Tips to optimize session performance of Informatica Server - Image 1

  1. Generally people tend to store flat files in a machine that is different from the server. Relocate the flat files into the machine that contains informatica server.
  2. Moving target database into server system may improve session performance because it minimizes the connections to sources, targets and informatica server.
  3. Distributing the session load to multiple informatica servers may improve session performance.
  4. Prefer ASCII over Unicode for data movement while running informatica server, because ASCII data movement mode stores a character value in one byte. Unicode mode takes 2 bytes to store a character.
  5. Optimize the query if a session joins multiple source table in one source qualifier.
  6. Avoid transformation errors to improve the session performance.
  7. Enable look up cache if your session contains lookup transformation.
  8. Drop constraints and indexes before running the session and re-build them after session completion. Because constrains and indexes in target can slow down the loading.
  9. Partitioning of session helps creates multiple connections to sources and targets and loads data in parallel pipe lines.
  10. Create filter transformation nearer to the sources or use the filter condition in source qualifier, if your session contains filter transformation.
  11. Use incremental aggregation if your session contains an aggregation transformation.
  12. Lastly, shared network connections effect the session perfomance, avoid network connections by moving the data into a local disk.
