Dear SolidWorks/PDM Users,
Our company recently migrated CAD Systems. We were using 2006 Co Create, but we are now live with SolidWorks 2016, SP5.0 and PDM 2017 SP3.0.
We had a consulting company help us take our legacy data and migrate into the vault. Since the day we launched, PDM performance has been extremely slow. It takes a very long time to check things in and out, change status and even more so when loading the BOM. I've seen it take 5+minutes to check-out / check in a part file or a drawing and some assemblies have taken 20+minutes just to check out or in. We have contacted our re-seller and they've looked into it, but have not been able to identify the issue nor offer us a solution. I know they are still investigating the issue and have began communicating with SolidWorks too. In the meantime, I figured I would put this on the forum, perhaps, some of you might have seen this before or have ideas / suggestions. We have a feeling it could be related to our legacy data, but we are not for sure. We currently testing / troubleshooting that ourselves. Something has to be wrong, it's extremely slow.
Any help, ideas and suggestions are much appreciated.
