    What (FM-actions) can cause the server to block/wait for a client?

      Hello experts!

       

      there are some actions that a user can make (or a developer can code) which cause the server to block other activities while it waits for a client operation to finish. In this time users may see the coffe-cup cursor.

       

      What exactly are the conditions or actions or script steps, which can cause this?

       

      E.g.:

      Badly programmed CustomFunctions that have an endless loop (Do ALL such CFs cause coffee-cup server-blocking?)

      Or a FileMaker search on complicated non-indexed fields (which are als o not cancelable)

      Or ...

       

      We would be grateful for your input, as we are keen to identify "show-stoppers" in our solutions.

       

      Thanking you all
