RM9 Performance speed

Good call, Tom.

Surely a very valid enhancement request that could be extremely useful in indicating that things have gone wrong. Renee?

It’s so interesting to compare systems. Mine is an even older, more basic 5-yr-old Dell Inspiron. Still runs my small RM9 file fast enough, though.

I found it was the RAM on my machine more than the processor or disk speed. I still have an old mechanical hard drive (no SSD) and slower processor. I had only 6 MB of RAM. When I upgraded to 32 MB of RAM, all my files access and apps that opened databases began opening much faster.

That’s what makes me wonder if he moved his RM9 DB to another machine, fix his DB problems (no matter how long they take) then move his DB back to his main machine, if that wouldn’t fix his problems.

Hi Richard

I didn’t move the DB to another PC. The problem that I was had was the same when the DB was on either my i9 Desktop or i7 NoteBook. As mentioned in an earlier message the issue was 3 million + erroneous records in the TaskTable and 23,703,020 records having a TASKID = 0 in the TaskLinkTable. Once the erroneous deleted all was fine an a recompacted DB dropped in size from 1.3GB to 30MB

In fact on my Desktop (Windows 11 Pro (22H2) on an Intel(R) i9-7900X CPU @ 3.30GHz processor, 32GB Ram and SSD) RM9.0.3.0 now opens in 5.2secs and the DB loads in 2.47 secs.
