Is your PDM server at your site or is it at a remote location?
My server is on site; though I would expect the numbers would bepretty close regardless -I believe only SQL data is going back andforth when browsing via Explorer.
These slower results were seen in this directory only, the other"normal" sized directories in this vault seem unaffected.
Since Ken asked in another post, and I was curious, and SolidWorks reported they improved the performance of a large number of files in a directory in a recent service pack I thought I would try this experiment again.
44,500 files is rather unmanageable so I thought I would try on a more realistic scale.
Once I got more 3,000 files in one directory is the first I felt Windows Explorer/PDMWorks Enterprise was bogging down a little. It took about four seconds for all the files to populate in the files area.
I threw in the towel at 6,000 files, at this point the speed seem unreasonable to work with in a design environment. It took a little more than 12 seconds for the files to populate. Yet even then, once the files did populate, clicking on the files to see datacards or previews was pretty snappy.
Other directories and searches seemed unaffected by this one large test directory. So from this test, the total number of files in the vault doesn't matter, just how many files in one directory at a time.
