    Connexion export to Alma is slow

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Alma



    Connexion exports are seeing slow response time -- typically around 10-15 seconds.


    Please see if this will help:


    In the OCLC Connexion client, verify these parameters:

    "Permanent Connection" configuration in the OCLC Connexion should be unchecked
    * In the Connexion client select:
    ** Tools > Options
    ** In the "Export" tab select "Edit" for the Alma Export Destination setup
    ** Uncheck the "Permanent Connection" option


    Also, in the same menu, try this:

    * Decrease the timeout to 20 and try again

    In one case, it was recommended also to decrease the number of retries to 0/1 and try again.


    It could also be a system-wide issue, never hesitate to contact support.
