Configuring Remote Component Options

A remote components is an underlying engine that performs a specific processing function, such as address validation, geocoding, or tax jurisdiction assignment. Some remote components can be configured to maximize performance. For example, a remote component might have options controlling how much reference data is cached in memory or how incoming data is matched to the reference data.

Each remote component is deployed into its own JVM. This means that JVM configuration can be done per remote component and independent of the server itself, allowing for flexibility of memory allocation and tuning of performance based on the characteristics of the remote component.

Remote component options affect all instances of the component as well as any stages that use that component. This is different from stage options, which can be modified at design time and at runtime.

Universal Addressing Module Component Configuration

For U.S. address processing, there are several options controlling which reference data is cached in memory. These options are set in this configuration file: server/modules/c1p/

  • DpvMemoryModel: Controls which DPV files are in memory
  • LacsLinkMemoryModel: Controls which LACSLink files are in memory
  • SuiteLinkMemoryModel: Controls which SuiteLink files are in memory

Refer to the configuration file for specifics on the different values for these options.

Enterprise Geocoding Module Component Configuration

The Enterprise Geocoding Module has several options that can affect the performance of U.S. geocoding. The options are in this configuration file: server/modules/geostan/ Of particular interest are:

  • Specifies the maximum number of possible matches to return. A smaller number results in better performance, but at the expense of matches.
  • Specifies the number of searches to perform. A smaller number results in better performance, but at the expense of matches.
  • FileMemoryLimit: Controls how much of the reference data is initially loaded into memory.
