Performance problems (yes)
Submitted by Armando on Thu, 2015-02-05 14:22.
Sorry to come back again with this! And sorry to bother you with that after your hard drive crash, Pierre... but it's becoming very difficult for me to work :
IQ, even if the greatest PIM in the world, really slows me down these days.
Quite possible that users not using equations/autoassigns/conditional formatting don't experience those performance problem.
I don't know if the way equations/auto-assigns are managed has changed in the last few months (?), or if it's related to the new grid "refreshing" routines/events, but each time some change is made to an item -- and especially if there are some equations/auto-assigns involved, it's really, really slow. And by slow, I mean... s-l-o-w.
5-8s waiting here and there disrupts my thinking process. I could post a screen capture if necessary.
I tried working with only one grid, but it's not practical and the difference isn't that great. I'm not trying to send a spaceship to Mars here, I'm just marking items as done, adding dates through auto-assign equations and stuff like that!
Anybody else experiences slowness in specific tasks ? Descriptions could help isolating the problem(s).
Tests would have to be made with a relatively large DB (to be somewhat realistic...), a few open grids, fields with auto-assign equations + row/column equations, and conditional formatting.
I'd like to give more details, but I'm in the middle of moving + writing a thesis, so it makes it real hard. (Note that there are various threads in the forum where I detailed performance problems regarding auto assigns/equations)
