Starting with 2022.3, the legacy Email tool configuration is no longer supported due to security reasons. Previously, when the SMTPServer tag was empty, the SMTP server was set based on Windows configuration. The current Email tool configuration uses the SMTPServerName tag which can't be empty.

Only XLSX, CSV, YXDB, and SQLite formats have been converted. All other formats will fall back to original Engine.

While AMP Engine writes SpatialObj data to the file when saving as CSV file, the original Engine doesn’t. This causes file size difference and users may experience decreased performance.

AMP Engine passes data to and from R in the original Engine format.

Double conversion takes time. Single R tool execution time can be slower with AMP than with the original Engine, but it will be faster if multiple branches are run simultaneously.

There is a difference with Using Dictionary Order when sorting special characters.

Different implementations are used to make dictionary sorting on original Engine and AMP. For original Engine, Windows implementation is used. For AMP - ICU library. It works differently only for special symbols, but not for words/letter/native sort.

Union

Join

The order of the records may differ due to their variable processing. You can avoid this by setting a specific output order.

There is a maximum of 32 allowed connections for this tool when AMP is enabled to prevent deadlocks.

When input tools are directly connected to the Union tool and one of the inputs is invalid, the Union tool outputs empty results with AMP, while E1 outputs partial results (consisting of everything from valid input tools).
