Thanks for taking the time to ansnwer. Was that version 4.4 or 4.3? In your opinion, is 4.4 faster than 4.3?
Ok, here is a small extract from an email I have received 2 days ago from our customer...
1. At the co-ords position the
delay in publishing is now very evident, ranging from 7 – 20 seconds.
Sometimes you get an Error “ The workflow has been aborted” .
They are running version 4.3. The system is an intranet running in somewhat of a mission critical environment. There are 28 terminals only, but only about half of them are really used on daily basis. There are 2 IIS7+ Web Servers Load Balanced that are serving the terminals. To me that is quite adequate. The issue is most visible on this one page that has about 15 Content Blocks on it and is amended about 4 times a day. There are also two SQL Server 2008 R2 Mirrored across two separate boxes. All on the same local LAN.
Personally, I thought that version 4.3 was much better than all the previous ones, but my problem is that I am still receiving emails like the above and there isn't much that I can think of apart from upgrading them and hope that will speed things up. Now yes, the page is quite loaded, so it is understandable that it will take a bit longer, however, I would love to see it go down a bit more.
If my customer is happy then I am happy, but for now, my customer would like to see it a little bit faster, hence I keep fishing for information. All the other customers are happy with the speed, but this particular one isn't, so that's why I keep asking the same question over and over again.
Personally, I love Sitefinity and can't wait until the next project, but it hurts receiving emails like that from the customers who paid really good money for the system (Professional Edition and all).
I hope I don't come across as a nagging person. The Documentation portal has been launched now, I will check out all the articles on Optimization and see if there are a few things that I can do already. I hope the Optimization section of it is comprehensive.
Thanks again Markus,
