Found a good post we’ve implemented over on Greg Kaupp’s blog regarding improving the performance of the NAV Application Server and thus the responsiveness of the client machines. Simply put adjusting the size of the MetadataProviderCacheSize to a number exceeding the total number of objects within NAV (~5000 or so) will greatly enhance the performance of the NAS.
To update this for your instance of NAV you need to modify your CustomSettings.config file which should be located in the following spots:
NAV 2009 – C:\Program Files\Microsoft Dynamics NAV\60\Service\
NAV 2013 - C:\Program Files\Microsoft Dynamics NAV\70\Service\
Once you open the CustomSettings.config file, update the MetadataProviderCacheSize setting as depicted below.
And that’s it! Thanks again to Greg for posting this originally. His blog is loaded with tons of other useful tips and I encourage you to check it out at the source link below.

I was browsing the web and came across this article that states Physicists May Have Evidence Universe Is A Computer Simulation.
Wait, what? Like the Matrix?
Anyhow, just for fun I thought I’d throw this link up here.
Ever built a fusion reactor in your basement before?
Ok, neither have I.
Whenever I see something like this it really inspires me. There are some _brilliant_ people in this world and Will Jack certainly fits that bill as far as I’m concerned. Now 17 years old, Will has built his own IEC Fusion Reactor in his basement lab. Wow.
Anyways, I thoroughly enjoyed reading through this build and wanted to pass this along.

So this is my own little corner of the Internet…
I’ve wanted to put up a blog for quite some time but between books, projects, work or life, I hadn’t embarked on that quest until now. I hope to share a little bit of who I am, what interests me professionally and personally and also maybe learn a thing or two along the way.
Alright, what next? Maybe a little about who I am… yeah that’s it.
I’m currently a Software Development Manager for a large Canadian hardware retailer and I’m in the midst of managing the technical development and implementation of a full scale ERP project based on Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 and LSRetail. Suffice it to say that I’ve gained valuable experience throughout this process and I’ll be blogging about some of the pitfalls we’ve encountered along the way and how we overcame them as a team. We’ve still got a lot of work to do on this thing, so I’m sure some situational posts will go up in the coming months.
Other miscellaneous topics I’ll probably write about at length include IT Security, Mobility, Software Development and anything else that I think someone else might find interesting.
Umm, what else?
Yeah, I better stop. I realize this post is really weak. I get it. It’s my first one! It’ll get better. I promise.
