NCM config comparison between two configs never finishes for large config files

Updated: July 26, 2016

Overview

When you do a comparison between two configuration files (running vs startup) that are very large (about 16.000 lines), NPM sometimes does not finish the comparison.  

The first config you chose is loaded nearly instantly but as soon as the comparison begins, it does not continue. However, the comparison of smaller config-files (1500-2000) works fine.

 

Environment

NCM, all supported versions

Cause 

This behavior is known in NCM with very large config files.

 

Resolution

Use the Config Change report Job when comparing large configs.
