Running batch report in AX2009 (batch printing)

Since the change of AX2009 batch framework, printing of report through batch can be done through two methods:
– Printing from server (to printer or file)
– Printing from client (the legacy batch processing)
Prerequisites: For both of the method, there’re some mandatory setup:

  1. Enable any of the AOS that you want to make it as batch AOS
    (Administration -> Setup -> Server configuration)
  2. Create batch group for printing.
    Eg. One for client printing and one for server printing.
    (Administration -> Setup -> Batch groups)
  3. Add the batch group created in #2 into the AOS enabled for batch processing (in #1)

Regular maintenance activities in Dynamics AX that affect performance

The following list describes some of the maintenance activities that we recommend that you perform regularly in your production environment:
  • Defragment indexes – You can defragment indexes from either SQL Server Management Studio or the Intelligent Data Management Framework (IDMF).

  • Update SQL Server statistics from SQL Server Management Studio – We recommend that you run both manual and automatic updates of statistics. Manual updates may become more important as the size of your database increases, because automatic updates are less likely to be completed on large data sets.

  • Reduce the size of the database – You can use IDMF to keep the size of the production database small. A small database makes database operations more efficient. For example, you can delete or archive data that is not required in your production system.
