LiveDB performance

I have the impression that LiveDB is a lot slower since the 1.29 update
Anyone else experiencing this?

It takes longer for the items to appear ad after that frequent busy state when hovering over items. This used to be pretty fast. I remember that there was a change for disk caching, but that should have been faster and not slower

Hmmm...now that you mention it, it does seem slower.

I can confirm this...much slower respond times and sometimes it doesn't even establish a connection at all.
You have to restart Poser completely then in order for it to work again.

It also sometimes doesn't load the material thumbnails correctly.

Thanks for the feedback on this.

The new LiveDb system caches each LiveDb material onto your hard disk. So once it's downloaded once, you should be able to load it again and it will be loaded from disk rather than downloading. But perhaps there is an issue if a connection fails - required a reboot. I will report this to Otoy.

Reboot does not help
The weird thing is that even thumbnails which have been shown before in the same dialog session are still delayed when you hover over them the second time.

If it is cached in the default temp folder, it is not diskaccess time either since that is an SSD

I think the biggest performance issue is that when you hover over the list, you get intermediate busy delays wich take 5-15 seconds and that happens a few times if you have a long list like Misc
If you hover over each of them one by one then the delays will be gone during the poser session (whether you leave the plugin or not). Once you restart Poser the delays are back again

If I speculate it seems like it is reading a bunch of thumbnails in blocks and starts reading the next bunch when the mouse ecounters a non-cached one.

Wim - it's possible the thumbnails are still coming from the Otoy server, but the texturemaps for a LiveDb material are coming from your local disk cache.
