PLC Process not updating DB in a timely manner

We need same this functionality in v7.2 as well

IBM development team has analyzed the PLC data loading issue where the recovery time is large. The solution is a large Project level effort that requires change in PLC behavior.

The proposed enhancement is to:
1. write backup file until reach max size
2. when recovery, read more lines from backup until reach MaxBatchSize

This should reduce/remove the need for the tool since there will be less files especially since your MaxBatchSize is 5000.
