Steps to Correct the cache amount for QuickBooks Enterprise
There are two methods widely used to troubleshoot the problem of correct cache amount for QuickBooks Enterprise.
Solution 1: Use the QBW.ini file to set the amount of memory cache to use
- When the overall software is located on web hosting computer then we follow this software.
- Reach the computer server hosting the company documents.
- Open the QBW.ini file inside Intuit.
- Open QBW.ini file and then add a DBSERVEROPTIONS section with the help of chosen values-
InitialCache= 256 (‘None’)
MaxCache= 512 (‘Unlimited’)
- Save the file.
- Enter to “take effect” for the .ini file setting.
- Shut down your hosting from the file menu and then turn back on.
If you have “Server only install” then follow these steps-
- From The CMD, type: net stop QuickBooksDBXX
- From the CMD, type: net stop QBCFMonitorService & then start QBCFMonitorService
Solution 2: Manually change cache settings for Server-Only Install
We highly recommend that you should get in immediate contact with IT experts as editing Windows Registry is no easy task.
- Open command prompt arranged to host multi-user access for the QuickBooks Desktop record. Copy and paste this in the text field: HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\QuickBooksDBxx\Parameters.
- After -ch and -c check the numbers. Enterprise solutions work fine with configuration -ch 512M and -c 256M. If in case your present configurations are not modifying then change it as described.
- If error may occur then verify that you have entered correctly.
Step 1: Edit the configuration in the registry:
- Save all your works, files and log out in QuickBooks Desktop users.
- Open the command prompt and then type net ‘stop QuickBooks DBXX‘ and hit enter, as you have to stop QuickBooks Desktop Database service.
- Now it’s time to Edit the Windows registry, change location: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\QuickBooksDBxx\Parameters. The current value should look like -n QB_SERVER_NAME -qs -gd ALL -gk all -gp 4096 – gu all -ch 256M -c 128M…
Step 2: Intuit suggests to following changes:
- Change -ch 512M to -ch 128M. For unlimited, delete -ch 256M and -ch 512M. The value should look “-n QB_SERVER_NAME -qs -gd ALL -gk all -gp 4096 -gu all“.
Note: This setting is not purely unlimited but the fact is that the “Database managed” and can use more memory when needed.
- Change -c 128M to -c 256M.
- Change -ch 256M to -ch 512M.
- If you find out that the settings are at the recommended level then don’t change them. These files do not cover the reason for your performance troubles.
- Save your changes.
- Enter “net start QuickBooksDBXX” on the command prompt (xx should be considered as your software version year).
- Open QuickBooks and then open your company file.
Before selecting an option, please make sure that QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise 14.0 or 15.0 is updated to the latest version.
