What makes drawings detach so slow

59 Views, 3 Replies

I am using A2Ki map, on a Novell network with 100MB/sec NIC with
certified cableling. The computer in use is a 300Mhz Pentium II with
256M ram.

My problem is that it takes about 5 minutes to disconnect an attached
drawing file (about 5 to 10 M in size) This makes it extremely
frustating during the day when working with multiple drawings. It seems

as though all I'm doing is waiting for these diffent drawings to finish
detaching. I have also tried this an another computer that is a 550Mhz
and it has the same problem. All these computers are running with
AutoCAD map installed on the local machine and NOT on the Netware
server.

Kim,

Where do the files you are working on reside, on the network or local? If
they are on the network if you move them local and run disconnected from the
network do you still see the delay? I suspect the network and if removed you
will see the problem does not occur.

The files reside on the Network. Also they did not used to be this slow. We
recently moved our office and upgraded all of our network components and it
seems every since we went to "faster" network componenets everything went
slower.

Kim,

It sure sounds like a network issue. Have your administrator take a look.
You did not say if the problems occur as well when the network is out of the
equation, but I would suspect the problem goes away. Also your recent move
may have something to do with it.
