help need reg requested start

Hi all,

i have a scenario like when a event raised then based on date entered by user after that date only i need to start processing that task and it can be 1 month ,so requested start can be set like 1 month etc,.

my doubt is can i go for workflow using requested start or it will be performance issue for time gap in months?

Please suggest,

Regards,

Rajkumar

    Hello,

    I don't understand your requirement but anyway a Requested Start deadline of 1 month will not cause a performance issue.

    Yes, you can use the date entered by the user as the requested start date. As far as performance goes, it will not really effect performance since no task or background job is being executed until after the deadline is reached. However, I would suggest having a maximum number of days the user can enter. You don't want a WF sitting in a waiting status for too long. My personal rule of thumb is that a WF should be started and completed within 30 days. Any (single) business process that takes longer than that to complete perhaps need to be redesigned.

    Hi Raj,

    As such there will be no performance issue as far this standalone workflow is consisdered....but there is some thing which might get affected in overall system.

    Suppose everday 50 instances of this same workflow are being generated................................and after 29th day we will have nearly 50*29 = 1450 active instances in system.So this will put verload impact on system and none of the wokflow instances are not completed as such.
