New in SolidWorks EPDM 2012: Improved response time with large data sets

In SolidWorks Enterprise PDM 2012, system performance has been improved for users working with large data sets and users working remotely with Copy Tree and template-created documents.

In previous versions of Enterprise PDM, long delays or system stoppages could occur when users worked with large data sets with many parent/child relationships. Affected functions included viewing the information on the Contains tab in Windows Explorer or in a CAD add-in when the Archive refresh rate is set at a low value, for example, five seconds.

When creating new documents from remote replicated sites with high latency connections to the SQL Server, it now takes less time for users in remote offices to create new documents using templates and the Copy Tree tool. Combining the queries that save card variables has made the creation of documents from templates as much as three times faster. Improved query methods have optimized WAN traffic for the Copy Tree operation, making the new response time up to ten times faster.
