Fast FM server hosting services or is this always so slow?
I have tried two hosting services with a FM12 database. When run locally, this db performs very well. On both remote systems there are significant delays, particularly when the db starts up. I can understand this if it has to recreate indices, but just scrolling through a couple of hundred entities on a layout creates huge delays and rotating beachballs. I always thought that serving a database myself via home dsl (supposedly 20 meg down / 5 meg up) would be limited by my network bandwidth and by going to a professional this would no longer be an issue. The speeds I'm seeing are comparable to when I served the DB myself.
