Parameters for Data Packaging

If the synchronization link is not stable enough, users of the mobile device can transfer their data in individual packages. If the connection breaks during synchronization and you need to synchronize again, only the packages that did not arrive completely in the target system are transferred.

Users can toggle this option in the client and select a package size (see Using Data Packaging). The package size is specified as the number of containers. A container consists of a header and a body, and is approximately 300 bytes large.

As administrator, you can configure data packaging with parameters in the file MobileEngine.config: The following parameters are available:
