Specify only relevant exception thresholds

Exception processing is the most effective way to identify system performance problems. You can set exception thresholds for virtually all Accounting and Statistics fields. However, carefully consider the fields for which to specify exception thresholds. The more fields you specify, the greater the effects on processing.

Specify exception thresholds only for those fields that you believe will signal poor performance in your environment. For information about how to generate exception reports and for a list of threshold fields that you should use, see Using Statistics and Accounting reports to identify exceptions.
