Viewing and Changing Advanced VLDB Properties

By default, some VLDB properties are hidden when you open the VLDB Properties Editor. These properties are categorized as advanced VLDB properties because in general they are used infrequently and are relevant to only certain projects and system configurations. These settings are not dependent on any user privileges.

When modifying advanced VLDB properties, the same caution should be taken as when modifying any other VLDB property.

To Display the Advanced Properties

  1. Open the VLDB Properties Editor to display the VLDB properties for the level at which you want to work. (For information on object levels, see Order of Precedence.)
  2. From the Tools menu, select Show Advanced Settings.
  3. Modify the VLDB property you want to change. For use cases, examples, sample code, and other information on every VLDB property, see Details for All VLDB Properties.
  4. If necessary, you can ensure that a property is set to the default. At the bottom of the Options and Parameters area for that property (on the right), select the Use default inherited value check box. Next to this check box name, information appears about what level the setting is inheriting its default from.
  5. Click Save and Close.
  6. You must also save in the object or editor window through which you accessed the VLDB Properties Editor. For example, if you accessed the VLDB properties by opening the Metric Editor and then opening the VLDB Properties Editor, after you click Save and Close in the VLDB Properties Editor, you must also click Save and Close in the Metric Editor to save your changes to VLDB properties.
