  • Re: Speeding up Logos

    Bradley, once this thread has plateaued, it may be nice to take all the best practices that are applicable for most folks' contexts -- and try to consolidate everything into one 'master' post. So for example, it may look something like this: HDD: If you have a HDD, then... SSD: If you have SSD, then... RAM: If you have <= 12GB RAM, then... RAM: If

    [quote user="Bradley Grainger (Faithlife)"] Logos will use a technology called "memory-mapped file I/O" on Windows to read/write the index files (and resources)... these performance optimisations are disabled unless your system has at least 12GB of RAM... [/quote] Ahhh... well that answers my previous post! So upgrading the RAM +> 12GB should have

    [quote user="Kevin"] Bradley if you are still monitoring, I am interested in your suggestion about RAM. Try as I like, I cannot get Logos to use more than at most 2GB of RAM... [/quote] Wow, how did you get Logos to use that much RAM? I'm lucky if I can get it up to 750MB... and I've got 8GB -- but for me, Logos just doesn't want to put everything and

    [quote user="Bootjack"] Ok Scott, thanks for that. But does not the " set use ngen to yes" do the same trick for Logos? [/quote] Hi Bootjack! Are you asking me if NGEN is the same as ReadyBoost? If so, NO. Are you asking me if NGEN works for Logos as well as Windows? If so, YES. Blessings!

    [quote user="Michael Parry-Thomas"] I have noticed on my system how the speed is dramatically increased on searching... one of the things I have done in the past is not let my Windows operating system indexing any of my drives [/quote] LOL Michael; INDEXING is the Devil Indexing not only massively slows down the PC, but radically pushes components to

    Well I've got some final news to report; thank you to everyone who contributed. I've got some pretty surprising results to share... A) This gave me a noticeable increase in speed: I took Dave's advice above and did the following command: Set Use Ngen to Yes B) I discovered that my Webster Merriam Dictionary, when left as an open resource, slowed things

    Taht[quote user="Dave Hooton"] [quote user="Scott David"]I did the Use Ngen... it did help -- maybe about a 25% increase. Perhaps it's telling Logos to commit more resources to RAM instead of Hot Swapping with the HDD?? Will enabling this option perhaps make Logos faster over time (will it observe and learn)... or is it pretty much one and done?[/quote

    [quote user="Bradley Grainger (Faithlife)"] (4) is the best option for improving Logos' overall performance. We don't support (and strongly recommend against) options (2) and (3); our experience shows that users report a much higher rate of crashes and instability when running Logos from a SD card. (1) would help improve indexing and searching speeds

  • Re: Speeding up Logos

    [quote user="Dave Hooton"] Do not consider options 2 and 3 as they will not benefit performance. Load speed (in Windows) is improved by the command Set Use Ngen to Yes (which requires a restart, and is then permanently enabled). SD cards are not recommended/supported by Faithlife, and could be slower than your 7200 RPM HDD. Option 4 is the best by far

    [quote user="Kevin"] 2 and 3 will very likely be slower, but ymmv, depends on sd card controller and your usage. You could try this with a small capacity card for limited resources. [/quote] Thanks so much Kevin. I have USB 3.0 (wish I had 3.1) -- and was thinking of the newer SSD ThumbDrives... unfortunately, they're all 3.1 so it's uncertain what

    [quote user="Earl Tipton"] ... my experience with Logos 7 and 8 is that the HDD is the single most important influence on response time...

My computer is quite fast with anything else I do
