Enabling the optimized mode for a simulation test

Updated on September 15, 2022

This content applies only to Pega Cloud environments

Enable simulation optimization to use this feature again after you disabled it in your Business Operations Environment (BOE).

If the optimization feature is implemented and enabled in the BOE, the system optimizes simulations to increase processing speed and scalability. Optimization applies to distribution test, ethical bias, and value finder simulation types.

Note: When the optimized mode is enabled, the system can only run simulations on fully optimized strategies. If a strategy contains any unoptimized components, the simulation run falls back to unoptimized mode or fails. If this occurs, you can run the simulation in unoptimized mode.

As a best practice, to ensure optimal system performance and to avoid issues when running simulations, update the strategies that contain unoptimized components to make those strategies fully optimized. A common reason for unoptimized components is the use of expressions with unsupported functions. You can solve this problem by changing the strategy logic to contain only supported functions or by adding the unsupported functions to the allow list. For more information, see Understanding globally optimized strategies.

  1. In the Pega Customer Decision Hub portal, click Simulation testing, and then open a distribution test, ethical bias, or value finder simulation.
  2. In the simulation run window, click ActionsEnable cloud optimization.
    Note: The option to enable cloud optimization becomes available only after you disable cloud optimization for a simulation.

    Simulation test results in the Pega Customer Decision Hub portal. The Actions menu is expanded.
  3. Review the confirmation message, and then click Submit.
  4. Restart the simulation by clicking Actions Restart simulation.
    Result: The system runs the simulation test in optimized mode.
  5. Verify the results.
