[02-NOV-2013] Performance improvements

Hi everyone,

I imagine that most of you have probably noticed that post submission has been a pretty pokey process lately. We were commonly observing delays of 5 to 20 seconds after hitting the post button. So I finally managed to do a bit of performance profiling, and I think I found the source of the hangup. (It was a subsystem that I never thought to check for performance issues.) So I made a fairly significant configuration change that seems to have greatly improved the speed of post submission. Please let me know how it works for you.

Thanks for your patience and support! Have fun.

Working great, much faster than before. I had seen it hang up for about a minute for me, never thought to bring it to your attention. Thanks SB. Wink

I noticed the slowness last night, so another test post.

EDIT: Original post took ~15 secs – is that ok?

Nope, that’s far too long, but I’m running a very intensive database optimization process at the moment, so it’ll be a bit slow for the next 20 minutes or so.

Speed test
EDIT:
It’s funny, I have noticed the big lag, but I have become so accustomed to glitches in EVERYTHING computer related that I just accepted it.

This is much better now.

It was driving me crazy, but I just assumed it was a different subsystem that is less than optimal and can’t really be improved without completely re-coding it. Turns out it was something completely different that I never thought to check for performance issues.

Ok, the process finished now. Should be reasonably fast.
