Fileshare defaults to using the TCP/IP (CCITCP) protocol. If you are running both the Fileshare server and the Fileshare client on the same Windows system you can use an alternative connection protocol that utilises shared memory: CCISM.
Shared Memory transfers are usually faster than using TCP/IP between two processes.
To configure a Fileshare server to use the CCISM protocol, use the following option:
fs -cm ccism
To give the best performance, we also recommend that you start the Fileshare server with the /sc option (synchronous communications mode).
You can combined multiple communications methods for the Fileshare server, as follows:
fs -cm ccism –cm ccitcp
Unfortunately, you cannot run multiple protocols on a Fileshare server that is running in synchronous mode.
To configure a Fileshare client to use CCISMEM, you must use the following line in your FHREDIR.CFG configuration file:
Many configuration options exist for CCISMEM, details of these can be found in the comments within the CCI.INI configuration file.
