Experience Upgrading to 800xA FP4 ?
I'm currently in the planning stages of an upgrade from 800xA Version 5.1 Rev A to FP4.
The system currently runs on Windows 32Bit (Server 2008 and Win7). Memory usage is quite high, but within what I'd expect for a system of this size - ie about 1GB for the Aspect Directory on the Aspect Servers and about 600MB for the OPC Server on the Connectivity servers. All Servers are virtualised. Overall system erformance is OK, but the graphics display exchange time is slow. The slowest graphic has over 4000 OPC items and takes 10 to 12 seconds to load. Typical graphics have up to 2000 items and load in around 4 seconds.
We are considering upgrading from Win32 to Win 64 Bit at the same time as upgrading to Feature Pack 4. I'm aware that this will require a complete OS re-installation on all servers and clients and a rebuild of the Aspect System. Its a substantial amount of work.
Has anyone got experience of running 800xA on Win64 bit ?
Has anyone done an upgrade of 800xA from x86 to Win 64bit ?
Is it worth the effort of upgrading ?
Will the site get any benefit in display exchange times ?
What are the other real benefits of running 800xA on 64Bit Windows if it runs OK on 32bit?
