Improving performance by increasing thread count

When many processes are in progress at the same time on your system, the performance might be low. To improve it, you can increase the thread count.

About this task

The tasks such as importing assets, creating or modifying assets, and other tasks impact the performance of your system. When the system is overloaded with such tasks, you can increase the thread count to improve the overall performance. As a result, the tasks are run in parallel, rather than one by one. You set it by using the iisAdmin command. For more information, see iisAdmin command.
Note: This setting does not speed up the delete tasks.


  1. Open a command line and go to the location of the iisAdmin command. By default, it is /opt/IBM/InformationServer/ASBServer/bin.
  2. Run this command:
    ./ -s -k -value <threadCountNumber>
    In the place of the <threadCountNumber> variable, specify the number of threads.
