Using read-only and partitioned clients in automated builds

Build automation scripts frequently create, sync, and tear down clients. This can fragment the db.have table and cause your end-users to experience slower sync operations. To avoid this problem, consider adding one or more additional client workspaces of type readonly or partitioned for the exclusive use of automated builds. For details, see the Support Knowledgebase article, Readonly and Partitioned Client Workspaces.


Although a readonly client cannot be changed into a writeable client, a readonly client can be converted to a partitioned client.
