FileMaker Server Top Call Stats Help

Demystifying the FileMaker Server Top Call Stats Log

Are you wondering why your FileMaker Server is running slow or performance is poor? The FileMaker Server top call statistics log can help. It records up to 25 of the most impactful remote calls to your server that occur during a collection interval.

Using this native FileMaker feature, we can see who is connected to our server and what actions they are performing. This can give us an idea of why our server might be running slow or performing poorly.

Sometimes it can be difficult to understand all of the statistics displayed. In order to help bring clarity to this, Joe Martin, Senior Developer here at 360Works, put together a demo to give you a clearer picture of what is going on with your FileMaker Server and how you can improve your development. He will give you greater top call insight and cover the relationship between top call stats, client stats, and the server stats log.
