Version 8 Slower Than Version7

Author: (Colin)

Hello Everyone, I am currently converting our application from version 7 to version 8. To test the conversion I have set up a database that both systems access and then running the same components to test both the speed and accuracy of the v8 system. I have found that the v8 system can take up to 7 times longer to run the same component using the same data. The data is the same - because its the same database - so its not a bad or missing index. Its running on the same machine - so that's not it. I have tried the v8 system with both the U3.0 and U4.0 drivers with no difference The slowdown occurs in the proc_profiling counter DBMSTIME. V7 takes 12 (I assume MS) whilst V8 takes 80 for the same process. Windows 2003 Server V7 is 7.2.06 V8 is 8.4.05 Microsoft SQL Server 2000

  1. Hi, In some cases, changing the default value of $NET_FMT to HIT_META from HIT_DB can help. For a description of this setting (introduced in 8.3.02) please see uLibrary or Thanks, Jas.
