Issue/Introduction

The max_process_tags limit is set to 5 by default. Can see this can be increased. What is the max value we can set it to?

Environment

Release : 6.7

Component : CA RELEASE AUTOMATION RELEASE OPERATIONS CENTER

Resolution

There is no max limit on max process tag system settings however, it should not be set more than 100 (in extreme scenario).

 

From our experience around system performance with this setting we only recommend it to be set to 10, no higher than that.

Some of the reasons for our recommendation are mentioned below.

1: Tags are equivalent to versions in RA. Having more than 10 concurrent version is a bad design and it require to revisit the process and make it a new one. Having more concurrent version illustrate adding more and more changes/new features to existing process making it more complex, which should/can be designed as a new process all together.

2: Multiple tags, illustrates the process have grown complex which makes it difficult to manage.

3: Tags are just like snapshot and this snapshot captures each and every detail of process. It is recommended to keep the number of snapshot can be made within a limit, as this is a system wide setting.
