    Create PowerExchange for Snowflake Source

    Informatica GNS Seasoned Veteran



      In PowerCenter Version 10.2 Hotfix 2 opening the "Create PowerExchange for Snowflake Source" windows is very slow. Also selecting and importing the sources/targets is slow.

      Are there any tips to improve performance?

          Hi VA,


          This issue can occur when the plugin initialization takes time during random seed generation in java.security file.


          Please Check if this below steps helps:


          1. Close all the PowerCenter clients.

          2. Open java.security file from Informatica client's <Client_Installation_dir>\clients\java\32bit\jre\lib\security location.

          3. Change the following property value from file:/dev/./random” to "file:/dev/urandom in java.security file.

          Current Value: "securerandom.source=file:/dev/./random"

          New Value: "securerandom.source=file:/dev/urandom"

          Save the changes.

          4. Open the Snowflake import wizard and see if it helps in reducing the time taken to open the wizard.
