XPP 9.1 Compose and Abandon Times Over a WAN


We have workstations set up in an office and XPP server installed on a virtual server that is 5 miles away, connected via DS3 going through an Internet service provider.  The files are saved on a server that is local to the workstations.  If you have a similar remote XPP server, what are typical compose and abandon times you guys are getting for large files (870 pages, 16MB), medium files (150 pages, 1.2MB), and small files (50 pages, 500kb)?  We are looking to see if the times we are getting are typical for this type of setup.

  • Are you running the xyview locally? I use Exceed onDemand (EoD) (which is Exceed for WAN basically) from Vancouver and work normally with systems in Denmark, Sweden. I estimate I run at about 95% the speed of sitting in Denmark on the in-house network. However, because I'm fully remote - I'm not working with the files on my local machine and having to shovel large amounts of data back-and-forth to server. I'm running the display-end only. Works like a charm. That's over a VPN connection too by the way.
