It seems like our Clarity system performance has gradually deteriorated. It just happened that 2 weeks ago we upgraded from 8.1.03 to 8.1.3 and the reponse time has improved after the upgrade. But, it may be a matter fo time before the performnace slows down again. What is your typical response times for tasks such as project list, project properties update, task properties update, and editing project and task properties in the list. For us, before the upgrade, it used to vary from 8 secs to 45 secs. After the upgrade, the reposne time is under 10 seconds. What is acceptable? Is 8-10 secs good response good or should it be under 4-5 secs? How do you go about debugging the system performance? Another related question - Actuate reports performance was bad before the upgrade. For some reason, it has become worse after the upgrade, especially in some of the custom reports. Any input on the performance issue is appreciated.
