Since the release of FileMaker 13 we have been exploring a new feature called “Perform Script on Server” (PSoS).
I’d like to give a big Thank You to the FileMaker engineering team for this new capability in FileMaker 13. I have been rethinking solutions in light of this new capability and the results have been astounding.
In a recent blog post, I describe how PSoS works, how it’s best implemented, and how our tests show PSoS can drastically improve database performance, more than 100x in some situations. I also cover a number of considerations before you run wild and convert scripts to execute via PSoS.
A follow up post is coming with even more exciting information as to what is possible with PSoS. If done right this feature can dramatically transform the user experience.
