Dependency Tracing

ZOM maintains an online cross-reference of the dependencies between the objects in your application that enables many of the powerful features of ZOM. With dependency tracing on, the default, ZOM automatically maintains the dependency database as you use the ZOM services. However, this can slow the performance of the ZOM services in some situations. In this case, you can turn the dependency tracing option off to speed up the ZOM services. This disables explosion and implosion operations, and the display of cross reference information.

Note: The Dependency Trace switches off the Dependency Explosion (no explosion) therefore dependant objects are not recreated, because the dependency is not traced. As dependency information is out dated every time an object is recreated, update this information using ZOMTouch at regular times, i.e. at the end of the day. Switch Dependency Tracing on before executing ZOMTouch.
