We use LF Plus regularly in our organization, and it takes an extremely long time to publish even a small amount of documents. I was hoping somebody could shed some light on exactly where most of the processing is taking place during the publishing process, so that we can try to identify if/where there are any bottlenecks that are holding us up.
As a test, we attempted to publish 27 documents (a few hundred individual pages), totaling about 400 MB. It took over 30 minutes to publish, which seems excessively long. While it was running through the “Exporting Briefcase” stage of publishing (which took a long time), we did some performance monitoring on both the pc running Plus, and on the server, and neither of them were showing much activity, so I don’t think resources on either machine are the issue.
Are there any recommended system specs for LF Plus? We are desperate for a way to speed this process up (it’s common for it to take several days for us to publish a Plus volume). I don’t think throwing more RAM or processing power at the workstation will help, because neither of those areas spiked while Plus was running. Maybe a solid state hard drive? Have other users reported this issue?
