We have a web service running on a SQL server sending data to our I-Series using a DB2 connection. The first time the service is run to submit an order, there is a long delay before it is submitted. On repeated orders it much quicker. Is there something we can do to speed up the initial connection? The other thing that may cause us an issue is we have the inactivity timer set on the I-Series. Would this cause the connection to drop when reached and have the long delay on an order placement like the initial one? Any tips would be great.
