Can I take advantage of multi-core systems during Resource Updating? Is vmover.exe multi-threaded?
NOTE: USE AT YOUR OWN RISK.
Quest does not provide support for this script or batch file.
Vmover.exe is not multi-threaded. However, you can run multiple copies of vmover.exe on the same computer to take advantage of multi-core/multi-processor machines.
Attached is a ZIP file containing a vbs script and a batch file. Extract this ZIP file to a multi-core file server you would like to process. If the file server is a NAS device, choose a multi-core system that has a high-bandwidth network link to the NAS device.
Copy the vmover.exe and vmover.ini files from the console, and place them in the same folder as the scripts. For more information, see KB20808:
For information on exporting INI files, see KB102884:
To run the script, double-click the "StartProcess.vbs" file. You will be prompted to enter a path, which must end in a backslash. This path will be searched for folders, and a separate vmover.exe process will be started for each folder that is found.
For example, if you specify D:\ as your path, and D:\ contains 10 folders, 10 separate vmover.exe processes will start and run simultaneously. You will see a command window open for each process that is launched.
Please Note: Any files present in the root of this path (not in a subfolder) will not be updated.
