I have a weird issue which I experienced in the past and made me stop using TDM temporary.
To summarize: when try to view the entity properties dialog for any table in my model it takes about 5 good seconds until the dialog shows up. The column properties is slightly faster but still ~3 seconds to show up.
TDM version: 188.8.131.52 64 bit
I am using a windows 2016 vm, Intel Xeon, E5-2650 v3 @2.30GHz (2 processors) with 16GB of RAM, 64 windows.
The model statistics:
After looking at the activity on the VM, I noticed that there was a background CPU usage from all the programs that I normally use of 20-25%.
I closed a few of them and I got the usage to about 9%. The table properties dialog now opens somewhat quicker ~3s. It's improved but not drastically.
I also use Power Designer and opening table properties in PD is pretty fast, instantaneous even with the all CPU usage in the background.
Do you have any suggestions for improving the performance - I am trying to get better hardware but until then is there anything else that can be done ? Is there any log that I can turn on to see where TDM is spending time?
