Using multiple-threads for multiple migration
Using the Multiple-thread options, you can select whether to use multiple threads for multiple migrations. The term thread refers to operating system functionality, allowing programs to break up into two or more independent work units for concurrent execution. Multiple threads allow the execution of other tasks while a migration is in progress, or to do multiple migrations concurrently. If you do not use multiple threads, you can run only one migration at a time. The default setting is multiple threads and execution of up to 10 migrations at a time. The optimal number of migrations to select depends on your hardware configuration.
For more information about working with threads, see AR System server threads.
To select Multiple-thread options
- Select Tools > Options.
The BMC Remedy Migrator Options dialog box appears.
- Under Category, open the Migration list and select Multiple-thread.
- Select Use Multiple Threads for Migrations to execute more than one migration at a time; select Do Not Use Multiple Threads for Migrations to limit migrations to one at a time.

If you execute more migrations than the threads you have specified, the extra migrations are queued until a thread becomes available.
- Click OK.
