Adding a Routing Database Resource
In Management Console, go to
Click the Add button to create a new database or select an existing database
resource then click the Edit button
to change it. You can also create a new database resource by copying an existing
one, by clicking the Copy button .
If you are creating a new database, enter a name for the database
resource in the Name field. The name can be anything you
choose. If you creating a new database by copying an existing one, rename the
default name as needed. You cannot modify the name of an existing database
resource, because any services or jobs that reference the database resource by
its original name would fail.
Change the Pool Size value if needed, by specifying the
maximum number of concurrent requests you want this database to handle.
Note: This setting represents the number of threads on the components that are
listening for service requests from the Spectrum™ Technology Platform or
executing a Location Intelligence Module stage (that is, the maximum number
of managed connections). Every web service request enters Spectrum from the
platform and is passed to the components. The default value of 4 can be
increased to accommodate greater request loads. A pool size that matches the
number of CPUs is recommended. The maximum setting should not go above twice
the number of the CPU core; for example, on a 4 CPU machine the combined
number of threads for all services should not exceed 8. Performance tests
should be run with various settings until optimal performance is achieved
for the usage.
In the Module field, select Spatial.
In the Type field, select Enterprise Routing.
In the Path field, click the Add button to
select the full path to the database file. The database files can be found in:
where <InstallLocation> is the directory you specified when you installed
the database files, <CountryCode> is the two-letter country code,
<Vintage> is the date of the data (for example, 2009.1), <Type> is
driving or pedestrian, and <Country> is the name of the country.
The database resource now appears in the list of available database resources for Find Nearest, Get Travel Boundary, Get Travel Cost Matrix, and Get Travel Directions.
