The Installation program loads the Tally.ini file in the Tally programs or applications directory. This is a CONFIGURATION SETTINGS file, which Tally refers to, for some basic settings when starting. The file content appears as shown:
Tally introduces three attributes to the .ini file.
OptimizeNetwork in Tally.ini
Setting OptimizeNetwork to No in Tally.ini reduces memory requirements and prevents the system from going into a virtual memory mode although it slows down the generation of reports.
However, for users with a large volume of data, it is advised to use more than 500 MB of free memory and set OptimizeNetwork to Yes. This increases load speed dramatically and generates reports faster.
The settings can be changed in accordance with client memory available.
By default, Optimize Network in Tally.ini is set to No.
LoadBuffering in Tally.ini
Certain types of data (such as, a large number of Batches, Godowns and Tracking numbers) very quickly exhaust the available memory, when information is cached during loading. Set LoadBuffering in the Tally.ini to No, to reduce this buffering, although it will result in a marked increase in network traffic.
For a lower volume of data (such as, a large number of masters and stock items, but a smaller number of batches, Godowns and Tracking numbers), it is advised to set LoadBuffering to Yes
By default, LoadBuffering in Tally.ini is set to Yes.
FlushFile in Tally.ini
For both Single and Multi users of Tally, it is practical
However, this could be risky in places with frequent power problems and without Power Backups. In which case, it is advised to continue with the Tally.ini default setting FlushFile to Yes
By default, FlushFile in Tally.ini is set to Yes.
