-AdministrationConnectionPoolSize <int>

Specifies the number of open connections in a connection pool created for a PowerPivot service connection to Analysis Services. Each PowerPivot service instance opens a separate administrative connection to the Analysis Services instance on the same computer. PowerPivot service creates a separate pool to reuse administrative connections for the purpose of checking for idle connections and monitoring server health. The default value is 200 connections. Valid values are -1 (unlimited), 0 (disables administrative connection pooling), or 1 to 10000. If you select 0, every connection will be created anew.

-BusinessHoursEndTime <string>

Specifies the ending point in a range of hours that define a business day. Data refresh schedules can run after the close of a business day to pick up transactional data that was generated during normal business hours. Default is 8:00 p.m. Valid values are specified in quotes, in a.m. or p.m. clock time (for example, "08:00PM". Hours must be between 1 and 12. Minutes must be between 1 and 59.

To specify the full range of hours for a business day, you must set both BusinessHoursStartTime and BusinessHoursEndTime. The two parameters define the interval of hours that make up a business day.

-CachedDatabaseholdLimit <int>

Specifies how many hours an inactive database remains on the file system after it has been unloaded from memory. The default is 120 hours. The cleanup job uses this setting to determine which files to delete. All PowerPivot databases that are inactive for 168 hours (48 hours in memory and 120 hours in the cache) are deleted from disk by the cleanup job.

-ConnectionPoolSize <int>

Specifies the maximum number of idle connections the PowerPivot service will create in individual connection pools for each SharePoint user, PowerPivot dataset, and version combinations. The default value is 1000 idle connections. Valid values are -1 (unlimited), 0 (disables user connection pooling), or 1 to 10000. These connection pools enable the service to more efficiently support ongoing connections to the same read-only data by the same user. If you disable connection pooling, every connection will be created anew. Note that changing the limit on connection pool size, including setting it to 0, will not result in dropped connections. Connection pools exist to reduce wait times when connecting to data. The PowerPivot service will never deny a connection based on connection pool settings.

-ConnectionPoolTimeout <int>

Specifies how many minutes an idle data connection will remain open. The default value is 1800 seconds (or 30 minutes). During this period, the PowerPivot service application will reuse an idle data connection for read-only requests from the same SharePoint user for the same PowerPivot data. If no further requests are received for that data during the period specified, the connection is removed from the pool. Valid values are 1 to 3600 seconds.

-DataLoadTimeout <int>

Specifies how long the PowerPivot service application waits for a response from the SQL Server Analysis Services (PowerPivot) instance to which it forwarded a load data request. Because very large datasets take time to move over the wire, you must allow sufficient time for the PowerPivot service instance to retrieve the Excel workbook and move the PowerPivot data to an Analysis Services instance for query processing. The default value is 1800 seconds (or 30 minutes). Valid values range from 1 to 3600 seconds.

-DataRefreshInactiveWorkbooksThreshold <int>

Specify the number of data refresh cycles after which a schedule is disabled, or enter 0 to never disable a schedule due to inactivity. The default is 10 cycles.

Workbook inactivity is measured as the absence of connection events over multiple data refresh cycles. A data refresh cycle is counted each time a data refresh operation is triggered (either by the schedule or a Run Now operation), regardless of whether the operation succeeds or fails. If a number of cycles pass (10 by default) with no connection requests for the workbook, the data refresh schedule is disabled due to inactivity.

-HealthBasedAllocation <switch>

Specifies the health-based allocation algorithm that forwards connection requests to the PowerPivot for SharePoint server that has the most CPU and memory resources available. This is the default allocation algorithm. HealthBasedAllocation and RoundRobinBasedAllocation are mutually exclusive. You must specify one or the other. If you set them both to false, HealthBasedAllocation will be used because it is the default. If you set them both to true, you will get a validation error. Syntax for these parameters include entering just the parameter name, or parameter:$true or parameter:$false.
