Slow performance on characteristic dimension filter

Hi folks, I'm hoping you can help me troubleshoot something.  We have a report in a cube that's been in production and stable for a while (a year or more).  We're getting some complaints about slow performance, and I'm noticing that it takes 15 to 20 minutes for the selection screen to refresh with possible values for one of the characteristics of the Material dimension.  The characteristic only has 3 possible values for my selection.  I would expect it to take more like 1 or 2 minutes.  What should I look at to find the cause?  We're running BEx with version 3.0B of Business Warehouse.

Carolyn,
In the properties for the characteristic - set it to read data from the dimension table - this can be done from the BeX tab for the infoobject or from WAD if you are using a web template or from the properties in the characteristic in BeX..

  • Slow performance for large queries

    Hi -
    I'm experiencing slow performance when I use a filter with a very large OR clause.
    I have a list of users, whose uid's are known, and I want to retrieve attributes for all users. If I do this one at a time, I pay the network overhead, and this becomes a bottleneck. However, if I try to get information about all users at once, the query runs ridiculously slow - ~ 10minutes for 5000 users.
    The syntax of my filter is: (|(uid=user1)(uid=user2)(uid=user3)(uid=user4).....(uid=user5000))
    I'm trying this technique because it's similar to good design for oracle - minimizing round trips to the database.
    I'm running LDAP 4.1.1 on a Tru64 OS - v5.1.

    This is a performance/tuning forum for iPlanet Application Server. You'd have better luck with this question on the Directory forum.
    The directory folks don't have a separate forum dedicated to tuning, but they answer performance questions in the main forum all of the time.

  • Extremely slow performance with Radeon HD 7870

    Hi,
    I am using a number of Adobe programs on my new Windows 8 64 bit system, with 16 gigs of ram, an Intel Core i5 2.67ghz, and AMD Radeon HD 7870 2 gig. All the programs (including After Effects and Illustrator) work very well with the exception of Photoshop CS6 64 bit, which has extremely slow performance with Use Graphics Processor enabled in my preferences (which Photoshop selects by default). If I turn off Use Graphics Processor, the slow performance vanishes. If I change Drawing Mode to Basic, there might be a slightly detectable improvement over Normal and Advanced, but it's still horribly slow. The refresh rate seems to be just a few frames per second. Everything is slow: brushes, zooming, panning, everything.
    I've tried changing the settings I've seen suggested elsewhere: I switched Cache levels to 2, history states to 10, and tile size to 128k. No effect. Photoshop is currently at the default of using 60% of available ram. Efficiency has remained at 100% throughout all my tests. Also, this slow performance has affected me from the moment I installed Photoshop; it didn't crop up after previous good performance. The problem exists regardless of the size or number of documents I have open. Performance is still terrible even when I create a 500 x 500 pixel blank new canvas and try a simple task like drawing with the brush.
    Photoshop is fully up to date, and so are my graphics drivers (Catalyst version 13.1). Any help would be greatly appreciated; at the moment performance is so bad in Photoshop that it's unusable with graphics acceleration enabled. Thanks in advance for replying.

    Great news!
    I followed your suggestion, Noel, and uninstalled my drivers with the Catalyst Uninstall Utility (which I hadn't used before), rebooted, reinstalled Catalyst 13.2 Beta 7, rebooted, deleted the PS Prefs, started PS, and now the performance is radically improved!
    It baffles me why I would need to do a clean driver uninstall in a new system environment that has only ever had this video card, and is only a few months old, but that action seems to be what's improved the situation. Note that because I deleted the PS preferences, the good performance now occurs with the default Use Graphics Processor enabled, and Drawing Mode set to Advanced (with every feature in the Advanced dialog checked except 30bit display).
    Having no reference point, I can't tell for sure if performance is as good as it theoretically ought to be for my system specs, but using the standard 13px brush is only slightly laggy behind the cursor, even if I become reckless and squiggle on the canvas violently. It wasn't just sluggish response before: Photoshop seemed to be in pain trying to draw the line segments as it laboured to catch up to the cursor. That is pretty much gone now.
    Much more tellingly, zooming and panning the canvas is like it ought to be, responsive and clean, more or less like it was for me in CS4 with my old Nvidia 9600GT. The poor performance with zooming and panning was the most worrying aspect of the issue. It's a great relief to see these working more properly now.
    I have to confess I'm a little embarrassed to have drug you through all this hassle only to discover that something as rudimentary as properly cleaning out the drivers would be the apparent solution. I never would have imagined that doing that, with such a new and stable system, would make any difference, since I don't have a legacy of older drivers dotting my hard drive. In any event, I'm really grateful that you guys took the time to try to help me.

    As you can see, the Microsoft Basic Render Driver still appears as a Video Card in the list. This presumably has something to do with Windows 8, and I really don't know if its presence here is still a sign that my card is not being used to its optimal capability. I have a hunch that the slight lag that I am still experiencing with the brush when Use Graphics Processor is on -- totally absent with the acceleration turned off -- implies that Photoshop is still unable to take maximum advantage of my card. I would assume that the brush tool should be more responsive with acceleration on than off, in a rig without any issues, but that's just assumption on my part. If you turn off Use Graphics Processor on your systems, is the brush tool more or less responsive?
    But again, panning the canvas with the hand tool is now extremely responsive, without any screen tearing or visible lag, and that's a massive improvement over the total meltdown of performance I was suffering from before.
    Thanks again very much for your help. I'm grateful to all of you who took the time to chime in.

  • Date - Dimension filter

    Hi
    In my Design Studio dashboard i have a dimension filter on date field used for filtering the report.
    I have created a variable with the following specifications in the BW Query:
    Processing By: Customer Exit - This gives by default the last 365 days and so have used the i_step = 1 in code.
    variable: Interval, optional
    Variable ready for input enabled.
    When i try to select a new value for the filter, in search it displays the date only for which there is a value maintained in the cube.
    Ideally this should not be the case, because  we can not expect the user to know as for which dates the values are available in BW.
    I also tried giving the property of the characteristic as - values in master data at "edit initial value", but still it does not help.
    Kindly suggest as how this could be handled.
    Regards
    Merlin

    Hi Merlin,
    I'm not quite sure if I understand you correctly...
    What do you mean by " not giving the values other than the ones in the cube."
    Are you looking for an option to show a calendar to the end user and enable him to choose a date irrespective of whether the value is available in the Cube/Masterdata or not?
    In this case I would suggest you to use DateField instead of DimensionFilter.
    This should solve your issue.
    Or
    You want to show all possible dates for the user which are valid for the current context. In that case use the option "Only Values in Posted Data". This option is specifically meant for this purpose.
    Do let me know if I had misunderstood something.
    Regards,
    Bharath

  • CS5 or Pc  Slow performance?

    Hi there,I have a problem with my pc at work and because I am not quite sure in which one is exactly the problem I decide to ask you.The pc is intel pentium 4 with 3 Gb Ram  XP professional service pack 3 Photoshop CS 5.
    The pc is connected to server(data base).When I open a bunch of photos (20-30) approximately 8 - 12 MB each one and sometimes I experience a slow performance(for example I am trying to retouch/clone something and it takes a lot of time for the pc to redraw/respond) the interesting part is that it doesn't happen always(sometimes can be even 3 photos and it will take ages to do something) also I notice that after appr. 20 minutes it's suddenly start to work as it should normally(it's like there was an update and when is updated/complete everything is fine).When that start to happen today I restart CS5 and load the same photos and it work fine, so it is really bizarre for me.I put a 89% ram usage to the CS5(I pretty much use only all the time Photoshop and bridge )   also made the history steps to 7 and the cache to 6 for big and flat files.I was checking the Efficiency and it's all the time 100 % so it's like it's not the photoshop but like I said today i just restard the ps and upload the same photos and got fix...I tried to copy the photos on my hard drive(so it should not be affect of the performance of the server but still the same as when I take them straight from the server.Because the hard drive is only 80 gb ( I don't store anything there )   i did clean up and disk defragment still  the same situation.Do you know what can be the problem and is it the Photoshop or the Pc?I'll appreciate it.
    Thank you  

    Could be that your PC is sometimes looking to check things on the server, and maybe the server or network is busy/bogged down and you PC gets caught in that cycle mess.....so,
    suggest next time you use Ps, set win performance monitor perfmon.exe or perfmon.msc ; setup to view graph of disk use and network activity and cpu usage.....then you may see/track a problem area.
    on win7, task manager does most of the same stuff

  • Slow performance of discoverer portlets

    Hi,
    I am running into slow performance of a particular page in portal, there are multiple sites hosted on the portal but these all have static text and are very quick to load but the one page with discoverer portlets and a web-clippping portlet is taking ages. If I run these reports on their own they are instant. Has anyone had similar problems with 9.0.2 portal and the discoverer reports ? I tried to identify a particular report that may be the culprit by deleting them one by one and to no avail. After a few hours effort I found the design mode was hanging as well. Again, just for this 1 page.
    There are 3 tabs on this page with about 4 report portlets and 1 web-clipping portlet.
    Thanks for any help,
    Brandon

    Thanks for the help.
    Seems to have been resolved although I'm not sure if thats the end of the story. Will wait and see.....
    So far apparently a port conflict of some sort in the discoverer config was causing it to hang and then also other system demands on the network and server housing the discoverer end-user layer were also causing problems.
    No error messages unfortunately......

  • Slow Performance - Java Related?

    This is an old box that I bought used recently, but the system install is recent. The system performs very slowly - about 50% of the speed of comparable Mac's in the XBench database. If I use Xupport to manully run "All" of the system maintenance crons I get some improvement, but it quickly goes back to being slow.
    Looking at my logs I have a "boat load" of Java errors under CrashReporter; there will be a string of "JavaNativeCrash_pidXXX.log" entries - many of them, as follows:
    An unexpected exception has been detected in native code outside the VM.
    Unexpected Signal : Bus Error occurred at PC=0x908611EC
    Function=[Unknown.]
    Library=/usr/lib/libobjc.A.dylib
    NOTE: We are unable to locate the function name symbol for the error
    just occurred. Please refer to release documentation for possible
    reason and solutions.
    Many of the line entries that follow, but not all of them, refer to SargentD2OL, which is a Java app, which I installed, but it did not work properly so I removed it. Yet I continue to get Java errors that refer to this now non-existant app.
    I have read that Java apps use a lot of resources, and that D2OL in particular uses a lot of resources. Can my slow performance problem be Java related? If so, any idea of how I can fix this problem?
    G4 AGP Graphics   Mac OS X (10.3.9)   500 MHz, 512M RAM

    Sorry to take so long to respond, but other issues in life have demanded my attention.
    None of the solutions given have had any affect. My Java folder has both a 1.3.1 and a 1.4.2 app - the Java Update 2 will not reinstall because it sees an up-to-date app in the folder. But reading the update file it says the older Java will be removed - but it is still there. Problem?
    On XBench the system scores a 9 to 10, while similar boxes on the XBench database score around 18 to 20. My cpu, memory, and video scores are very low. The HD through-put scores are the only ones that are normal. TechTool Pro 4 finds no problems. I have removed the memory sticks one at a time and retested after each cycle - no difference.
    I have two drives, each with a 10.3.9 install. One works fine, scores around a 17 on XBench, the other scores a 9 to 10. So it appears to be a software problem. The slower install is a drive from a iMac G3 that has been moved to the G4 - are there issues with this?
    My favored drive is the prior G3 one (newer and faster than the other drive that system tests faster in XBench) - it has my profile and all my info on it. It worked fine in the G3 - no problems.

  • Slow performance on a iMac 27" (maybe originated by the HDD)

    Hello,
    Well, I've had my iMac for 10 months now, but have never really paid attention to its performance since it was my first Mac and I was upgrading from a quite old computer, so it obviously proved to be a far superior machine.
    However, I noticed the problem when I started to be more critical with my machine's performance (this triggered by the fact that I bought, some months after, a MacBook Air which flies beyond time and space). Curious about this, I requested a friend to do a benchmark test with Xbench resulting in his machine (another iMac 27” with comparable specs) clearly outperforming mine. Even the Air, with its slower processor and smaller RAM, has a relatively close performance.
    Additionally, I have started to notice how the computer takes a long time to start-up and, after the desktop is “layed out”, it takes a lot of time before the machine becomes “responsive” (I usually try to start Mail and Google Chrome as soon as the pointer pops in!) with the final result that I have to wait in company of the beach ball for quite some seconds (half a minute) and even after the application had started, I can still hear the HDD working it as if there would be no tomorrow! And then, it is slooooow. Funnily enough, “tougher” applications like Photoshop or Illustrator don’t seem to have as many problems, relatively speaking.
    A little bit on the background info: I have two partitions: one for Bootcamp (since I was migrating from Windows, I had some software that I wanted to use there: Matlab and Office, basically, and then some smaller Windows-only programs).
    Derived from the benchmark test, I think I might have isolated the problem to the HDD (not sure though!).
    SO THE QUESTIONS ARE:
    1. How can I verify that the slow performance is due to the HDD being defective/badly configured/etc.?
    2. Has the Windows Bootcamp Partition any effect on my machine’s performance under MacOS? (I would assume not, but you never know!). I have more than 1.3 TB free space left
    3. What kind of corrective measures should I take?
    4. Any other type of advice will be warmly welcome: I will try to do some PRAM and SMC resets but I am not counting on it. I had also ran the disk utilities and there were no permission errors (not so sure what this means, but I’ve read that it is supposed to be good news.)
    5. Any extra info you might need, lemme know!
    Greetz,
    Víctor.
    PS: Sorry for the loooong post. I tried to be thorough!

    1. How can I verify that the slow performance is due to the HDD being defective/badly configured/etc.?
    Run Apple Hardware Test: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1509
    2. Has the Windows Bootcamp Partition any effect on my machine’s performance under MacOS? (I would assume not, but you never know!). I have more than 1.3 TB free space left
    Probably not but 1.3TB of free space left on the total HD is not enough for OS X, OS X needs a minimum of 10-15% free space! If you mean 1.3TB of Windows space I'd recommend posting that question in the Boot Camp forum.
    3. What kind of corrective measures should I take?
    If the drive is failing per the AHT then it's covered by warranty and will need to be replaced. Remember back up!!!!!!!!!!
    4. Any other type of advice will be warmly welcome: I will try to do some PRAM and SMC resets but I am not counting on it. I had also ran the disk utilities and there were no permission errors (not so sure what this means, but I’ve read that it is supposed to be good news.)
    Can't hurt, make sure you read the instructions carefully and execute the tests exactly as they are described for Intel based iMacs.
    5. Any extra info you might need, lemme know!
    If you no longer have a need for Windows on your iMac I'd recommend removing that partition using Boot Camp Assistant. That may correct your problems.
    I would also recommend checking if System Preferences - Startup Disk and see if your internal HD is highlighted as the Startup Disk.
    In addition I would recommend checking your Login Items (System Preferences - Accounts - Login Items) and delete any applications you don't need launching at Login.

  • Slow performance-CS4, why?

    Hi,
    I have a Q9450 proccessor, Vista 64 bit with 4GB ram. ever since I installed CS4, things are going a bit slow in PPRO, and I don't understand why?
    For example, scrubbing or playback in the timeline have become painfully slow, and sometimes, I see leftovers of the marker, as if I don't have enough memory (it's hard to explain in writing... I hope
    you got it). Overall, all the symptoms shows I don't have enough memory, because of the slow performance, but it doesn't make sense, cause I have 4 GB, and in CS3 it all worked great.
    Any suggetsions?

    worked just great...
    I don't get it.
    I googled a bit and found this thread:
    http://dvxuser.com/V6/showthread.php?t=149929&page=4
    read what Dave Helmly at Adobe had to say (below):
    YES we use all Cores for playback , effects, and rendering for both Mac and Windows.
    I highly recommend switching to Vista 64 if you are a Windows user (Mac guys are OK with 10.5.4 or higher) Vista 64 will allow Production Premium CS4 to run using more than 4GB of Ram (XP/Vista32 Limitation). As with most NLEs, there are several programs running at the same time to give you the NLE experience. CS4 now allows each process to take up to 4Gb of RAM. If you have 16GB of RAM, then 4 processes can take up to 4GB each. This is a HUGE advantage over CS3. What are some examples of processes? DynamicLink, AfterServer, Photoshop Server, Adobe Media Encoder, Titler, Playback, Capture, Importer, and many more. I tell most people to count on buying 8GB minium.
    So maybe I have to add more ram, in order CS4 to run properly...

  • Slow performance LR 1.3.1 (Library Module)

    LR 1.2 is running OK on my iMac. A while ago I tried LR 1.3. The upgrade really slowed down performance. Mostly a lag in the sliders and navigation tools in both Library and Develop modules that made it unworkable to me. I changed back to LR 1.2.
    Since I want to import Canon G9 RAW files into LR, I upgraded to LR 1.3.1 recently. Performance of sliders and the navigation tool in the Develop module seems the same as in LR 1.2 (or maybe even a little better). Which means it is OK (workable). It still shows the blur when navigating a 100% zoomed image though. But the navigation tool in the Library module still has the same slow performance as it had in LR 1.3. Unworkable!!! I tried everything: optimizing, new catalog, rendering previews, etc.
    I need the Library module to work smoothly (as in LR 1.2) in order to compare images at 100% zoom. I am afraid I have to go back to LR 1.2 again and find another solution for my Canon G9 RAW files. Most inconvenient. I am very disappointed. Especially, since Adobe showed they CAN get it right with the Develop module in version LR 1.3.1...
    Oh yeah, my system specs:
    iMac 2.16 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
    3GB 667 Mhz DDR2 SDRAM (2GB + 1GB)
    232,89 GB Harddrive, 113 GB available
    ATI Radeon X1600 128MB
    Mac OS 10.4.11
    Please Adobe, make the Library module run as smoothly as the Develop module in version 1.3.2...

    The preview folder is 2,11 GB big. The .lrcat is 47 MB big.
    I opened a new test catalog. I imported 326 images. After the import I rendered 1:1 previews. It took a long time. Real memory used was between 700-1000MB. Virtual memory used was between 1000-1400MB. When it was done rendering it still keep on using 700MB real memory and 1000MB virtual memory. I had to close LR and restart. Real memory after restart was 75MB real memory and 375 virtual memory.
    But it didn't matter. The lag in the navigation tool of the Library module was still there.
    I noticed that when clicking in the navigation window there was less delay as when I slide the white square in the window (in Library module). In the develop module this seems the other way around. Sliding showed less delay than clicking.
    What's going on here?
    I also have a MacBook. Performance seems much faster than on my iMac overall. After creating a new catalog and rendering 1:1 previews, the lag in the navigation window seems less than before. But it was still there...

  • Slow Performance Weeks after Encryption

    I encrypted my organization's laptops several weeks ago and did not return them to users until after I could tell by device performance that the bulk encrypting task had completed. I have two users that are experiencing extremely slow performance on their systems. When the users are typing anything like a Word document, upon each keystroke they see the Windows 7 "circle" icon at the mouse cursor. This seems to come and go several times over the week, and every few days we are getting a request to resolve the issue but after restarting the behavior may not act up anymore.
    I found a TID suggesting to change HKLM\SOFTWARE\Novell-FDE\Parameters\ThrottleEncryption to a lower level like Idle or BelowNormal. Is there anything else that I should also try? Thanks!

    Yes, but nothing from Novell yet - I will keep pushing them forward and let you know if I get some results.

    Hi,
    We have had (maybe) similar issues with our FDE setup that FDE policy
    assigned devices tend to loose the policy and start to do disk decryption
    and suddenly get once again the policy back and start to encrypt again. This
    could be found from "ZCM agent, Full disk encryption, about, Agents status,
    Settings, on section "Emergency Recovery Information" you could see events
    'Zone Changed' what according to Novell support meant that the policy was
    "re-initialized / changed" even our policy counter have not changed = policy
    got lost in some phase.
    We are now suspecting that there is some issues with the policy service that
    plays tricks on us.

    return them to users until after I could tell by device performance that
    the bulk encrypting task had completed. I have two users that are
    experiencing extremely slow performance on their systems. When the
    users are typing anything like a Word document, upon each keystroke they
    see the Windows 7 "circle" icon at the mouse cursor. This seems to come
    and go several times over the week, and every few days we are getting a
    request to resolve the issue but after restarting the behavior may not
    act up anymore.
    I found a TID suggesting to change
    HKLM\SOFTWARE\Novell-FDE\Parameters\ThrottleEncryption to a lower level
    like Idle or BelowNormal. Is there anything else that I should also
    try? Thanks!

  • Slow Performance, Windows with My Documents Redirection, path temp

    I've been annoyed by the SLOW performace on Itunes for Windows ever since i purchased my iPhone, i think i know one reason for my slow performance now.
    My Windowx-box is member of a domain (connected to a Windows Small Business server) and for security we use folder-redirection on "My Documents" folder (i.e instead of "C:\%username%\my documents\" we use \\server\%username%\my documents) this is a quite common setup on any businesscomputer using windows.
    Itunes on windows defaults to storing its cache and library in My Documents and in my case its on \\server\ , this hurts performance tremendously since im on a wireless 54g connection.
    I'd like to be able to configure where I want the library stored AND wich HD to put temp-files/cache on...
    If this is something that takes ages to fix I welcome any reghacks or directions or wich file to hex-edit to make a workaround.

    Copy the iTunes folder on the server to you local hard drive.
    Hold Shift and launch iTunes.
    Select *Choose library*.
    Select the *iTunes library.itl* file in the iTunes folder on your local drive.

  • Slow Performance Forms 10g !!!!

    Hi,
    I have migrated several forms from 6i to 10g and i use a 11g Database.
    Most of the users accessing from different countries complain of slow performance but the basic idea of migration is to get a better performance. My users mostly work on laptops.
    I am unable to find where the problem is. Is this might be due to network traffic since they are accessing via internet or any server related issues. Please help me to find and fix the problem and is there any tips for gaining better performance in using forms 10g.
    Regards,
    Suresh

    So, were they running on 6i via laptop and accessing via the internet before you migrated ? (ie: was it 6i client server or 6i web forms)
    Did you migrate the database too ?
    Slow performance as in : it used to be seconds and now it's taking minutes ?
