Do some actual measurements on identical tasks?
Verify what other background activity is going on with the Activity Monitor.
Not sure if it is relevant but FM13 is not supported on El Cap and perhaps the newer OS and newer hardware play together in such a way that makes FM13 behave suboptimally:
Do you get the same speed perception when you use 14 or 15 on that machine?
I did not pay attention to this point, ... thank you very much
The uncertainty continues, ...
The tests are performed in:
A) - 1 old iMac (<2016) with OS Sierra + FMP 13v9
B) - 1 MacBook Pro (2014 ... 2015) with OS Sierra + FMP 13v9
NEW MAC ( slowness is perceived by the customer )
C) - 1 MacBook Pro (with Touch Bar) with OS Sierra + FMP 13v9
D) - 1 MacBook Pro (with Touch Bar) with OS Sierra + FMP 13v9
-> Computers A and B search 2 to 3 seconds faster (than C and D).
-> FileMaker 13v9 works seamlessly on older computers (A and B)
Thanks for interesting report.
I'm curious about result of FM15, it is latest but also doesn't support "Touch Bar".
I hope someday I get MBP.
Is the database stored remotely or locally? Perhaps there is a network or network settings issue with the new computers.
The server is in the same office, the clients connect via wi-fi.
