I have had no problem with a server 1500 miles (50 milliseconds) away: Performance on 12 matches the same app using 11 600 miles (25 milliseconds) away using similar hardware and bandwidth. This preliminary comparison suggests that FMS 12 is less sensitive to latency than FMS 11
Comparison of FMS performance depend on newtrok performance and server power at both ends. Unless the 2 servers have similar power, distance, and network connection speeds, comparisons such as yours can be misleading.
I work in a solution in this way since 2 years.
I know exactly how fast (or slow) it is.
Now I upgraded to FM12 and i've tried many connections and I can assure you that the 2 issue reported in the first post are really true...
- same line
- same Computer
- same amount of users (and also the users think it's all moving slowly in the database)
I've tried by night, disconnecting all idle user but no matter....
I've made another test:
2 windows in layout mode. I need to copy a portal and paste in another layout (2 different basetable so i'll have to doble click and update with the right relatinship)
When I paste FM starts a progress bar for sortin 4.000 records.
Lockind at the relationship graph I simply realize that if I was in Browse that relationship would show all the record and the sort order of the portal does the rest.
But in Layout mode a progress bar of sorting record it's not acceptable, isn't it?
