My client uses a CRM solution with fmp12 file. He complains about the performance of FileMaker 16.


-It is shared by FMS16.0.3 Mac El Capitan 10.11.6 16GB RAM 256GB SSD. The server is located in the datacenter.

-Server SSL is on. Digicert certificate authority SSL file installed.

-Client computer is FMP 16.0.3 and 15.0.1 on Windows 10 16GB Core i7 4-Core 3.6GHz.

-FMP 16 and 15 are set as 128MB file cache.


He told me about the speed differences between FMP15 and 16. He opened the same file in the same machine using FMP 15 and 16. He told me this is not only the result of one machine but all machine in his office.

I wonder why FMP 16 is so slow. Is there a way to solve this problem?
