I have been having a lot of speed issues with version 9, in both the Designer and the client. It has been very frustrating, especially during development (when IIS caches are not beneficial).

I bought a new Dell XPS with a 2.8 GHz i7 processor, 8GB RAM and a solid state drive. Metastorm BPM 9.1.2.1 now flies like the wind! The Designer opens fully in 7 seconds (ie you can start using it). Add the first process, 3 seconds. Open the first VS, 2 seconds or less. Open a large solution (8 processes, 40 odd forms) 4 seconds. Opening a truely humungous VS (see attached image) 12 seconds.

As usual, I think Metastorm were developing for hardware several years in the future.

On a more serious note, we have noted that some of out customers have very fast systems for us to develop on, and some are very slow. We are trying to find the tweak or configuration that makes it fast. I'll let you know if we find it.

Following up to this but do you have any performance tweaks with respect to v9 Designer?

I'm using SSD... but that doesn't help anything on the server.  Have you guys found any recommended configuration on dev servers to make Designer hum?

Cheers,
Paul

Yes - develop locally. Sorry, I know that does not help, but it is the only way.

To speed up development if that is not possible, I have two remote connections open. I work on one, then move to the other when the dreaded 'hourglass' appears, or the Designer decides to readjust its window panes (a real time-waster). So that means I do two jobs at once. The danger is forgetting what you were doing, of course.
