We have a problem, we have installed 2014 on a couple of computers. And it´s very slow to create a new file, or just to browse through network directories. Even slow while browsing on c:\, but when we unplugg the network cable its going very fast. Then we can create a new file, and browse C: very fast.
So we think its something with Autocad and network...
We have googled it, and found that many others seems to have the same problem, and we have tested alot of things, but nothing works.
We can use Windows browser, and we can browse through all directories on the networkdrive as fast as if it was a localdrive. So its not networkspeed.
If someone have an Idea we would be very happy, best regards Clas
Have downloaded this.. .and it makes som things i think is maybe wrong.. or wiered..
When I browse the shared folder, it does as the picture... CreateFile c:\windows\csc\v2.0.6\namespace\(the IP adress to the shared folder)
Then says NAME NOT FOUND
Could this be the problem? and WHy!?
If I google Autocad Slow on Network.. I get over 1million hits.
But I cant find any solution for this...
Ist there anyone who have a solution for this???
Without someone physically sitting at your computer, a definitive "Do this, and this, then that" solution isn't very likely.
Now, stupid question time: did you install AutoDesk 360? Are you automatically logging on at start-up? I'm thinking *perhaps* everybody is automatically synch'ing their work and settings to the 360 cloud service. Might also want to check to see if Content Service is running and consuming resources; the initial index build can take some time.
Nope its not 360... just standard Autocad 2014 with SP1.
The thing isnt that it takes for ever, but for every folder we click on it takes about 1-2second to display the contet of that folder.
But in the windows browser its in 0seconds.
And when we are going to open up a projekt it can be under 6levels of folders. And in a normal browser we would have opend it in just a sec.
But in Autocad we have to wait for every folder to be shown. And we opening a lot of projekts under a normal day. So its frustrating for everyone to have to wait.
Also Saving files takes a while.
When we click Save, the blue bar in the bottom goes very fast, and the file is saved very fast, but then after its saved AutoCad freezes for 5-10 seconds. Also anoying, and it dosent happends on lokal disk like C:\
File saving, moving and copying, goes very fast in windows browser. So its not a network issue. 50-60mbit/s response time 25ms
I thought my engineer was crazy when he first said this but he has the same problem with Autodesk Inventor and says disconnecting his ethernet cable speeds things up like crazy.
I believe he said that if he is not connected to vault it works faster as well. Not sure if you are using vault?
Also maybe its a proxy thing? I know autodesk has a hard time with proxy servers.
