FIFO - First In First Out

In case if customer has two NMS data sources that run into single BI DB.

In previous 2.2.1 production environment, extract files are processed FIFO by the file datetime stamp.
Now customer using and the extracts are now processing in order of alpha file name. This allows for catch up when extract queue backs up due to larger volume at times. With this schedule and the new sort order of processing, DIMS and FACT are not always kept together and we end up with FACT record being processed before their DIMS.

1. How can we force a FIFO process order of our extract files?
2. How does your daemon determine its processing order of the FACT files?
3. Or is it the splfilemgr.plx code that determines the sort order?
4. Can we configure this to look at files FIFO like it used to?
5. What is the polling rate of the daemon - seems there is a lot of wait time between cycles - especially since it takes two complete cycles to get both the DIM and FACT files for a given batch.
