    FMAS 12 Coffee Cup Problem



      FMAS 12 Coffee Cup Problem

      Your post


           FMAS 12 on Windows 7 Pro machine.  The server is used for FIleMaker only, and hosts about 20 DB files totalling 600 MB

           Clients are a mix of Windows 7, XP, and Vista and iPad.

           Authentication is done by a mix of External and FileMaker authentication

           Database files were recently imported from FileMaker 11



           When opening a database for the first time since FileMaker was opened, clients experience a 10-second pause with a coffee cup icon about 90% of the time.

           The problem does not exist when I run the database files locally on my computer.


      Attempted remedies and checks that did not work:

           - Reinstall Windows and FMAS 12 on the server computer.

           - Checked and rechecked all External Data Sources

           - Checked all server performance meters to see if something is tying up/overloading the server.


           Anyone know what might be tying up clients for 10 seconds at a time?
