I was recently reading up on the Multi-fetch parameter, hoping to implement it in our Windows based environment (ADA and ADA2 DBs).
I stumbled across this great article by Steve Robinson. http://techcommunity.softwareag.com/AdaNat/downloads/A9RC7.tmp.pdf.
I also reviewed the Documentation in Natural 8.4, and found the following Note within the Read statement:
From these two sources, I am led to believe that using the following in Windows pointed at an ADA database:
Read multi-fetch 20 test-view logical by super-1 starting from #super-start ending at #super-end <some stuff> end-read
Would ignore the value of ‘20’ specified, and instead replace it with ‘8’ if MFSET is set to ON.
Since this article is now 10 years old, is there anyone who is working in Windows OS who can confirm that setting a custom multi-fetch value is still replaced by a default, and has that default been updated to a larger value for improved ‘fetching’ or is it still ‘8’?
