Configuration Variable Files

Metalogix Content Matrix uses a set of configuration variable files behind the scenes to help set and manage settings for all of the Metalogix Content Matrix Editions. This section explains what the configuration variable files are, their general behavior, and where to find them.

Configuration variables are contained in the following three files:

·EnvironmentSettings.xml

·UserSettings.xml

·ApplicationSettings.xml

Some settings can be configured for all Product Editions, while other settings are limited to individual Product Editions.

Any settings that are configured in multiple files will be scoped to the lowest level (either in the "UserSettings.xml" file or the "ApplicationSettings.xml" file), including values that are pulled from the old EnvironmentSettings.xml file.

IMPORTANT:  Make sure the Content Matrix Console is closed when making updates to configuration variable files.

EnvironmentSettings.xml File

This file allows users to configure general settings for all Product Editions. This means that these settings only need to be set in a single file, either for all users of the machine (if users are required to be local administrators) or for each individual user of the machine (if users are not required to be local administrators) and can be found in one of the following locations:

·If you are required to be a local administrator on the machine where Content Matrix is installed: C:\ProgramData\Metalogix

OR

·If you are not required to be a local administrator on the machine where Content Matrix is installed: C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Metalogix\Common

UserSettings.xml File

This file allows users to configure general settings for all Product Editions for a specific user account (the logged in account). This means that these settings will be configured for all Product Editions, but only for the current user account. If another user would like to configure these same settings to work for them, they must be configured manually under the appropriate user account.  It can be found in the following location:

C:\Users\<USER>\AppData\Roaming\Metalogix

ApplicationSettings.xml File

This file allows users to configure settings that are limited to the specific Product Edition of Metalogix Content Matrix Console, for a specific user account (the logged in account). This means that each Product Edition, for every user account, must be configuredindividually. While the "ApplicationSettings.xml" file for each Product Edition can contain some of the same settings, there are some settings that are Edition specific (for example, some settings may only work for eRoom Edition, so they will only be available in eRoom Edition). Any settings that are replicated through various version of the file will only be applied to the specific Edition.

For example, the "AllowCheckResults" setting is available in every "ApplicationSettings.xml" file, but it must be set on an individual Product Edition basis. Setting it for SharePoint Edition will not configure it for eRoom Edition.  It can be found in the following location:

C:\Users\<USER>\AppData\Roaming\Metalogix\Content Matrix Console - <Product> Edition.

Client Side Configuration

For an individual Metalogix Content Matrix Console instance, you can Configure Content Matrix to Run in a FIPS-Enalbled Environment.

Configuring Content Matrix to Run in a FIPS-enabled Environment

If your organization is subject to U.S. Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) and runs in a FIPS-enabled environment, you can make Content Matrix compatible with that environment by changing the value of the key FIPSEnabled in the EnvironmentSettings.xml file to True.

Environment Settings FIPS

Changing Resource Utilization Settings

Metalogix Content Matrix can manage its performance level through the Resource Utilization Setting. This type of management is also known as throttling, and is used for any migration action that is run with Metalogix Content Matrix.

To edit Resource Utilization Settings:

From the Contrent Matrix Console ribbon, choose Settings > Edit Resource Utilization Settings.

Resource Utilizatin Settings

By default, the Efficiency value is set in the center or the slide bar. This is the recommended setting for best performance and resource utilization (use of RAM, CPU, Network and SharePoint load) during a migration.

If the slide bar is further to the left, the migration will run more slowly, but will have less chances of overloading the available resources and causing potential errors. If the slide bar is further to the right, it with use more system resources, and can speed the migration up, but could cause some potential errors if the system resources cannot handle the data being migrated. There is a chance that if the speed is too high, you would actually see a slowdown in the overall migration, because the migration is trying to run actions faster than the resources properly allow.

The actual values that are provided in the slide bar are determined by the systems resources (the system that has the Metalogix Content Matrix installed on it). A system with high resources will be able to run faster migrations, even if using the default setting, because over all available resources will be higher. This also means that the Efficiency and Speed values will have a larger spread between them. A system that has low resources will run more slowly, simply because it doesn't have the resources to run at faster levels. Again, this also affects the default values for Efficiency and Speed, since these numbers will be lower, and have a smaller spread between them.

NOTE: If the Efficiency is set to its maximum (all the way to the left), the migration will run more slowly, but the "slowest" speed will be the same between systems with high and low resources. The "slowest" value between systems will always be the same, however, the *"highest" value will be different based on the systems resources.

While this value can be set through the Contrent Matrix Console, you can also set it through the back end, if the UI setting does not seem to be working for you. Please contact Quest Support for more information on this back end setting.
