I would like to share with this forum some benchmarking results, between Filemaker 12 and Filemaker 11. And if possible to confirm this conclusions with other FM 12 users.
Hardware: Core i7, L620, 2GHz, 8Gb RAM.
OS: Windows 7 PRO 64bits
File: One layout, 180 fields, 1 script with 178 variables.
Test scenario: Run the script, with script debugger and Data Viewer (current tab) opened, showing 10 lines (having the Data Viewer open while stepping).
With FM11, using the Step Into shortcut key (F6), I finish this test in 1:52 (one minute and 52 seconds).
After convert the main file to the new FM 12 format, I did the same test:
With FM12, using the Step Into shortcut key (F6), I finish this test in 19:38 (nineteen minutes and 38 seconds).
Conclusion: FM12 spend 10 times longer than FM11 (17 minutes and 46 seconds).
