Configuring the Number of FME Engines to Start

FME Engines connect to an FME Server Core and process requests from the Core. Adding FME Engines to start with the Core provides these benefits:

  • Increases the Core's ability to perform concurrent processing of requests.
  • Helps with Job Recovery.

The number of licensed FME Engines you can add is limited only by the host's CPU and memory resources, which constrain the maximum concurrent request throughput.

By default, FME Server is configured to start two FME Engines, if two licenses are available. If only one license is available, only one FME Engine starts.

To add or remove FME Engines to Start

Open the Engines & Licensing page of the Web User Interface, and follow the steps under Configuring the Number of FME Engines to Start.
