      disappointed in FMP 9 advanced on latest xserver

      Your post

      Hi all,
      I'm very disappointed on the performance of FileMaker Pro 9 Server Advanced  on the latest xserver (single core; 2.3Ghz, 8GB memory) running 10.5.6 server.

      I've almost no performance gain with this new setup compaired to my old mac mini core 2, 2gb memory and FMPS 9 adv.

      The database searching/exporting/relookup are all at the same speed from the past? How to enable FMP server to use the full power of the xserver?

      Some ideas:
      Export 719,000 records out of 3 related tables
      - mini: 19 min
      - xserver: 18 min

      Relookup 1 related field: 450,000 records
      - mini: 16 min
      - xserver: 15 min 40 sec.

      I cannot believe that a mini of 750$ is as fast as 4000$ xserver.

      Any ideas on what to do to get dramatic improvement?

      Philippe
