Re: Log entry performance

I think a lot of it has to do with the computer it is running on and how it is set up.  Presently I run a 3.6 GHz I-7 Octo-Core processor on 16 GB of RAM under Windows-10.   I am told this is a very good computer.  Even so, AC-Log doesn’t seem to tax it at all.  I have it set to Last-250.

Rick.  Try the following:


  • LIST
  • LAST 50


Give that a shot and see if it gets any faster.

Are there any guidelines for how ACLog performs as the number of log entries increases? I have almost 4000 contacts in my log and there is a significant pause when I press ENTER on a new log record. With a new, empty database the record insert is instant. I have a recent laptop with an i5 processor, plenty of memory and an SSD.

Is there any advantage to creating a new database and importing all of your old records?
