Server.conf Parameter

We are on 7.1.  I found one parameter in server.conf

 

com.kintana.core.server.PENDING_COST_EV_UPDATE_SERVICE_ENABLED=FALSE

 

Could any one of you please let me know what this parameter is all about. Thanks in advance.

 

Regards,

Aman

Re: Server.conf Parameter

This is regarding the Pending Cost EV Update service that updates the cost earned value of the tasks in a project

Re: Server.conf Parameter

Hi,

 

The service that you mention does not come alone. It comes together with PENDING_COST_EV_UPDATE_SERVICE_DELAY

 

Explanations:

PENDING_COST_EV_UPDATE_SERVICE_ENABLED
Enables a service that asynchronously applies external updates to the Pending Cost EV Updates service when updates cannot be made immediately. Default is disabled

 

PENDING_COST_EV_UPDATE_SERVICE_ENABLED

The number of seconds to wait after completion of the Pending Cost EV Update service before restarting the service. Default is 30.


What are the following two parameters used for?
com.kintana.core.server.PENDING_COST_EV_UPDATE_SERVICE_DELAY=600
com.kintana.core.server.PENDING_COST_EV_UPDATE_SERVICE_ENABLED=true

It is used to calculate the periodic breakdown data for the Cumulative Cost Metrics
Assuming you have these 2 parameters:

Example:
com.kintana.core.server.PENDING_COST_EV_UPDATE_SERVICE_DELAY=600
com.kintana.core.server.PENDING_COST_EV_UPDATE_SERVICE_ENABLED=true
1. Create a user(resource) and set Cost Rate: for him to $10/hour.
2. Create a project and add one task to it.
3. Set Sched Start Date to 1/1/05 and Sched Duration to 100.
4. Assign the user for the task.
5. Enable Finance Management in the project's settings.
6. Set project's state to Active and save.
7. Create a baseline for this project and save.
8. Wait 15-30 min to make sure all EV analyzes processes are completed.
9. Select Cost -> Analyze -> Projects -> Cumulative Cost Metrics on Dashboard

 

Best regards,

Dirk
