Master Scheduling Nightly Batch Job Taking Too Long? Here's a Tip: The folks at Dilip's blog for Dynamics AX had an issue where the Master Scheduling nightly batch job was taking 4 hours to complete. Here's how they reduced the time to 45 minutes: "Set up the Helpers count to a number more than 0, in our case 8 was a decent figure as it reduced the job completion time from 4 hours to 45 mins. By setting the helper count, it spawns into multiple threads/multiple tasks thereby making the job quicker."
