Autoloader performance

After all these years, why does the Vault Autloader still hold the world record of "Utterly poor application performance"? :smileysad:


Our customers don't have 5000 files, they don't have 10.000 files - they have 100.000 files - or 500.00 files ++


I'm currently stuck trying to import a folder with only 10.000 files, where the Autoloader will load up 1 CPU core and run for several hours before I'm allowed to click "Upload" What exactly is the Autoloader so busy NOT doing? There's hardly any network traffic or disk activity....


A bit frustrated...


Please give us a better tool for bulk uploading to Vault....

For Inventor files, Task Scheduler is far and above the better option.  As for AutoCAD, I just check in 'chunks' at a time utilizing the 'check in folder' option.  Never have liked autoloader, except for its reporting functionality.
