One of my clients has started to have a little bit of lag when opening or creating a ticket… can anyone suggest anything… they are running sql server express 2014 on a i5 machine with 8gigs of ram and a 128gig ssd. Client is connected with gigabit connection also running ssd and is running i3 processor with 4gigs of ram. I saw a software from the post below but im not sure how to read the result or what to look for that could be causing the slowness… just been one of those days where everything hasnt gone well and this is something im just trying to work through but im not sure where to start other than the networking and os basics.
here is a example of a report that I ran with the above application:
Its likely normal operation but regardless this doesnt appear to be any slowdown.
You need to explain to us any custom configuration when opening a ticket. Examples would be great.
PS: all that is telling you is it only took the system 12 miliseconds to perform that many reads… thats pretty good.
Do you have any anti-virus running? Is it active antivirus? If you disable it does it make any difference? Are you running any kind of third party software for backups, windows update, etc… does the slowdown happen on EVERY ticket or is it specific?
Is the hard-drive hibernation turned on? or off? Is power suspend mode enabled on the computer?
hmm I took both out and the ticket screen wouldnt show up… added it back to the create dine-in ticket rule and its working again… its hard to say if that helped with the lag since im remote… im going to be onsite tomorrow and will have a better look at everything. Any other suggestions as to what could be causing slowness… i know its not a network issue because im getting gigabit speeds across the network and not latency. I used this program along with ping to test network speeds… http://totusoft.com/lanspeed/
You have 5 or 6 unused entity list widgets on Ticket screen. You can switch to layout mode to reveal them. You can either redesign screen on layout mode or switch back to custom layout mode for previous saved layout.
Some button images reads from network. That may cause a slight lag if image sizes are big or points a non existing image.
Enable “Show workperiod tickets” setting on ticket lister widget.
Disable 30 seconds refresh for ticket lister widget and setup message server. (Auto refresh should be enabled but interval should be 0) It should refresh automatically fine when tickets updates.
Try to avoid unnecessary refreshes while designing automation rules.
After chatting with @emre I noticed that the lag seems to occur when users log in and start to navigate around the software. After they do things a few times it speeds up and the lag goes away. I think the problem is that the cache is getting cleared when the users log out. I have setup a rule to auto logout the user after about 2 min of inactivity. From what @emre tells me the cache is not cleared when autologout is enabled but this is not ideal after every order is entered it will be just as anoying as the lag is for the end user. Is there a way to manually logout and keep the cache from clearing?
