Slow importing of GPX points
« on: October 27, 2012, 16:59:58 »
When testing the new database I discovered that importing was very slow. I complained about it and Menion kindly increased the speed 20..30%.
But loading +1000 geocahces at the speed (less than 2 geocaches)/1 sec is VERY slow.
I tried to combine all logs into one large log entity, 30% improvement in speed. Still too slow :(
Then I removed seldom used points categories (my database size was 43 Mb), now it is 12 Mb. And now importing speed is back to normal (5...10 caches / sec).  :mrgreen:

So my speculation is that the database updating needs a lot of memory (RAM), and that is what my ZTE-Blade does NOT have  :(

So, either keep your database size small enough or buy a decent phone with at least 500 Mb of RAM for user data.

Hi stebu,
  I moved your topic from "Information" to "Troubles & Questions". Firstly I don't want to scary new users that import is slow, and secondly I hope, you'll have better opinion on import speed, if you test it in last 2.7.2 version ;)

Sure! The latest version works faster than any version with the old database.
