COSMOS File Loading

Discussion created by Peter Gillespie on Sep 13, 2007
Running SW/CW 2004 I didn't have a problem, running SW 2006 SP 5.1 / CW 2006 5.0, it is very slow.

I've got a Dell Precision 390 w/ C2D 6600 2.4 GHz, 2 GB RAM, running 7200 RPM drives pretty sure RAID 1. Not top of the line, and RAID 0 would speed things up, but it seems like it should be decently fast.

The actual problem? 35 MB COSMOS study files. So I have 4-6 studies, it takes 2-4 minutes to load a model. Then, if I change windows to a different part, then come back, it has to reload all that info into memory, another 2-4 minutes

This is a problem even when all files (SWX & COSMOS) are on the local drive, minimum programs running. (Yes, AV has to be running).

Any thoughts on how to speed things up?
