Filemaker Pro 12 Not Responding??


Sunday, May 13, 2012


I'm considering upgrading to Filemaker Pro 12 and have been testing to see if it's truely 64 bit processing on the iMac, however I'm noticing with Apple's Activity Monitor, that Filemaker Pro 12 is Not Responding many times during a sort or by deleting data and stalls for several seconds even minutes in many cases. I've got the following computer.

iMac 27-inch, Mid 2011

Processor  3.4 GHz Intel Core i7

Memory  16 GB 1333 MHz DDR3

Graphics  AMD Radeon HD 6970M 2048 MB

Software  Mac OS X Lion 10.7.4 (11E53)


This is a very fast iMac and I should not being seeing any relays like this.

Filemaker is only using a MAXIMUM Real Memory of 360 MB out of 16 GB. How can I improve the memory performance?

At times the CPU is up to 100% but usuually uses only 3% to 30%

What can I do to get the most performance from my iMac and from Filemaker Pro 12?

I'd like to avoid the wait time caused by the NOT RESPONDING issue I'm having. Luckily no crashes so far just slow processing.

Any ideas?
