[Archivesspace_Users_Group] system requirements and performance

Hi Jason,

The problems eventually become system-wide, but they appear most when people are working on our larger collections (the largest of which have tens of thousands of archival and digital objects linked somewhere within the collection hierarchy). I figured it was something related to that and have been waiting to hear about testing or a fix for it; in the meantime I was curious to hear if anyone else had been able to tune their indexer to mitigate it somewhat.  -k

Your box appears appropriately resourced. Is the poor performance encountered only when viewing resources in tree view or is this a system-wide issue? Do you have many (>1000s) child or sibling resources nested under a parent resource? I've seen slow load times with such collections.

I would be interested in hearing other users' current specifications for the systems on which they run ArchivesSpace. Our archivists here have been reporting very poor system performance for the last few days, and I'm guessing it's because the system runs slowly while the indexer is running against large collections, but I'm not sure if there's any configurations I can change or requests I can make to our host to improve things at all.

Currently our database is 621 MB and our Solr index is 1.8 GB. We have about 125,000 archival objects, 7,500 digital objects, and 850 resources. As of this writing we have 864 MB of memory free out of 3 GB total, running on 2 CPUs, and the indexer has two cycles devoted to it indexing 20 records at a time.

Any help would be appreciated. thanks!  -k
