Parallel verification typically improves verification performance for very large workspaces by using multiple execution agents,
Queue Processor, to process source files concurrently. You can start any number of Queue Processors on the local machine, remote machines,
or some combination of local and remote machines. You can run parallel verification online in the
Enterprise Analyzer or in batch mode with the Batch Refresh Process (BRP).
Important: When you run parallel verification on more than one machine, you need to make sure that workspace and project verification
options are set identically on each machine. The easiest way to do this is to log in as the same Windows user on each machine.
Alternatively, you can define a default option set that is automatically assigned to every user in the environment who has
not explicitly defined a custom option set. See the related topics for more information on option sets.
You enable parallel verification in three steps:
- Select the parallel verification method and the minimum number of concurrent Queue Processors on the
Verification > Parallel Verification tab of the Workspace Options.
- Start the Queue Processors on the local and/or remote machines. If you start fewer than the minimum number of Queue Processors
specified on the Parallel Verification tab, the verification process starts the needed Queue Processors automatically on the
- Verify the workspace online in the
Enterprise Analyzer or in batch mode using the Batch Refresh Process (BRP).
Note: Verification results are reported in the Activity Log History window. They are not reported in the Activity Log itself (for
online verification) or BRP log files (for batch verification). You can also use a Verification Report to view the results.
Follow the instructions below to launch Queue Processors and to specify the type of work they perform. You can launch multiple
Queue Processors on the same machine. Once the minimum number of Queue Processors has been started, you can launch them at
any point in the verification process.
