Improve Server Performance

Applies to Collaborator 13.5, last modified on March 05, 2021

If your Collaborator server is not working as fast as you would like there are a couple of things you can try:

  • Use a modern browser. The latest versions of Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, and Safari all render much faster

  • Reduce the size of your reviews. Collaborator supports a wide range of review sizes, but reviews that are larger than 10x our recommended optimal size can become uncomfortably slow.

  • Make sure your database is fast enough. Collaborator spends much of its time accessing the database, so this needs to be as fast as possible.┬áIf the database is not located on the same physical server as Collaborator, make the network connection to the database as fast as possible.

  • Try a different database. Embedded database is convenient for small environments, but with larger databases (~100k reviews or more) you should use external database: MySQL, SQL Server or Oracle.

  • Tune the server parameters. Try increasing the maximum heap size and/or tweaking the sizes of the various server caches.
