Hello out there,
last week, I downloaded the newest Data Modeler and imported a model from the data dictionary.
The model contains 715 tables, 8792 columns and 747 indexes.
Now I'm observing performance issues when modifying the graphical representation. When I'm dragging a table, it takes about 10s having it repainted. Wenn I'm trying to modify the size of a table icon, the table is painted gray which takes about 10s and then repainted in its original color which takes another 10s.
I tested this with a small test model and there the responsiveness is much better so it seems that the repainting slows down with larger models.
Is this a known issue? Can I circumvent this in any way?
I'm using 184.108.40.2064 with included JDK on Windows XP. The computer has 3GB memory.
the number of foreign keys has the biggest impact on performance - 715 tables alone are not that much. Some problems are fixed and there will be better performance in next release.
