Profound.js Server performance

To gain more performance within Profound.js, you can start the server by adding the --optimize argument.

This argument will cache different parts of your application thus making it perform faster.

However, this optimization disables the ability to do many development tasks, such as:

  • Making changes to database tables

    • Any change would require the Profound.js Instance to be restarted 

  • Making changes to screens and modules

  • Users having different library lists

IBM i instance:

Open the instance configuration on the IFS at /profoundjs-base/INSTANCE_NAME/conf.

Restart the instance for this change to take affect.

Append this line to the bottom of the file:
args: "--optimize"

On your local PC or another server

Append this argument to the standard start command
node start --optimize
