Our ps to pdf performance is decreasing dramatically when the watch folder receives over a thousand (or more) ps files. The linux server resources (memory/cpu) are fine (generally never more than 30% utilization) But the lapsed time between distillations can take over a minute when watch folder's file count is high. If the queue size is low (<1000) we are OK. The files are 1 to 2 MB in size. These same files on the Windows platform process in approx 2 seconds regardless of the watch folder queue size.
Anyone else seen this problem?
Also, is there a setting in the Unix platform to change the rate at which to poll the watch folder? And what is the default value?
