What is the maximum number of tasks I can reasonably expect to have in a newScale service (version 2007)?
I have approximately 30 tasks in my service. When the authorizations are complete, and the tasks are initially scheduled, my server response time (between clicking Approve and seeing the next screen) is about 30 seconds.
Does this sound unusual? Am I trying to do too much with my service?
There is no "upper limit" on the number of tasks that you can have in a plan. Having said that, the complexity of a plan -- including conditions and the use of external tasks -- can certainly be a factor in response times.
Having said this, 30 seconds seems like a long time and I strongly suggest that you open a case with customer care on this item.
We have alerted them to be looking for a case from you.
