Issue:

When scanning an Item in POS the insert into the line grid seem a bit slow.

 

Solution:

In the POS.EXE.CONFIG file change the Pooling to true

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Dynamics AX\60\Retail POS\POS.EXE.CONFIG file

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<configuration>
    <configSections>
        <section name="AxRetailPOS" type="LSRetailPosis.Settings.ConfigFile.AppConfiguration, SystemSettings, Version=6.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35" />
    </configSections>
    <AxRetailPOS OfflineDatabaseConnectionString=""
        StoreDatabaseConnectionString="Data Source=ktruel12;Initial Catalog=AXRetailSeattle;Integrated Security=SSPI;Persist Security Info=false;Pooling=true;TrustServerCertificate=true;Encrypt=TRUE"
        StoreId="AW-SEATTLE" TerminalId="SEATTLE-1" DATAAREAID="CERW" />
</configuration>

 

Estimated improvement:

30-50% better performance

 

Suggested environment for optimal performance on POS:
