As I have just started here and this is my first experience with ProIV I am going to do more research. I do see some issues with this software compared to other ERP systems I have worked with. Speed of the system for the users is one of the most important issues. I know no system is perfect. Stopping the lunchtime backup has greatly improved performance. Part of my job here is to evaluate this system and to improve user experience with it. I have spoken to George Walton about these and other issues and I feel we are making headway. Some issues are certainly caused by the users here. Thank you all for your comments.

The company that created the ERP system is 4GL. I do believe we are their largest customer. The system is called SM3 (Steel Manager 3).

thank you all. I was just speaking to the company that created our ERP system. I questioned them on going to an SQL system. They said that it would be slower unless they rewrote the code. I have worked with Syspro ERP system for years and they were using C-ISAM and switched to SQL. The difference was unbelieveable. Currently it takes 45 minutes to run one of our inventory reports. And why does ProIV only use one processor on our server? I asked this question to the company that created our ERP system and they said it has to do with ProIV. So we have 114 users in multiple locations accessing one server which can only use one processor, pretty scary stuff. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I am new to both. What is the size limitations to PRO-ISAM files?

Have stopped the backup during the day and just backing up at night. I had just started at this company and this is what they were doing. As of today, we backup database during the night.
