[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Problem with Classifications: searching/adding to records

We are currently looking at transitioning away from repositories in ArchivesSpace, and using classifications in a similar manner to what you described. In testing this, however, we are seeing similar delays in loading times in our 1.5.4 installation.

I recently reported this as a bug in JIRA (https://archivesspace.atlassian.net/projects/ANW/issues/ANW-652), but wondered if you were ever able to get this addressed or resolved?

Subject: [Archivesspace_Users_Group] Problem with Classifications: searching/adding to records

We have been having a problem with Classifications for quite some time - we are currently in version 1.5.2, but I think the issue actually predates our move to 1.5.2 and it's just finally gotten exasperating. And we did some testing on 2.1.0-RC1, and it persists.

In our workflow, every Accession and Resource record is assigned a Classification. When adding a Classification to the Accession/Resource record, AS takes a long time to search/find Classifications, particularly the one with (by far) the most records associated with it (about 3300). Saving is also very slow (slow enough that the browser can tell us as the percentage uploaded increases). We've monitored the system while going through these processes, and Java is working overtime during the search process.

Has anyone else seen this? And/or have ideas as to how we can fix it?
