What is the server step size?
Explanation: The server step size is a numeric value in seconds. It displays how often information from the audit trail table will be transferred into the BAM database.
Function: The numeric value is the period how often the event pipe job runs. You can increase the step size on high volume environments.
Please keep in mind: the server step size and the data transfer latency are asynchronous but dependent entities. On high volume environment increase the latency and the job runs less frequently. The job takes longer and the data size of each transaction is larger. Do not increase the step size to much, because the data size and data volume could have negative effects to the system performance.
