Are there performance recommendations for turning Admin Mode ON ?
This is a common question from administrators and points to some recommendations.
For best results, you should be aware of the long running crontasks on your system and avoid starting Database Configuration operations when they are running.
When you start Admin Mode, Maximo prevents your crontasks from firing but we have to wait the running ones to end their job otherwise there will be data corruption on your database.
You can either:
1. Change schedule of your crontasks making them to run during the dawn.
2. Run admin mode when your crontask work is not heavy.
3 You can do the procedure above to turn admin mode on whenever its needed or
4. You can run configdb.bat with maximo server down.
