To optimize performance, set the Oracle parameter optimizer_index_cost_adj to a value between 20 and 25. If this value is not set, the system can run exceedingly slowly, potentially blocking users from login.
Synchronized database and application server settings
Valid from Pega Version 7.1.3
Configure your database and application server to use the same time zone and character encoding to avoid conflicts.
Rule revalidation after updating properties without restarting nodes
Valid from Pega Version 8.2
When you update certain property attributes, such as a property's maximum length, rule types that reference the property might not reflect the change. You do not always have to restart nodes to revalidate the referencing rules when they cannot be resaved, for example, when they are in a locked ruleset. For Pega Platform™ 8.1 and later, for non-stream rules, such as activities, data transforms, and so on, use the reassemble API in Admin Studio or truncate the assembled classes table.
For stream rules, such as sections, harnesses, paragraphs, and so on, reassemble the rules and restart the nodes. For more information, see More about properties.
For previous versions of Pega Platform, use the System Management Application (SMA) to revalidate stream and non-stream rules.
