    Hi,

    I've been having some problems with slow performance using Resource Manager
    Essentials 3.4. I am running 2.4 Ghz Pentium IV with 1 Gig of RAM on Windows
    2000 professional.

    I have never experienced an acceptable performance from this system using
    RME.

    Does anyone have ANY suggestions on how to configure this system?

    Frustrated!!

    Thanks in advance,
    Markus

    Hi,
    1. Sever requirements shown in the Cisco documentation are minimal.
    2. Check swap file in the server (for 1GB RAM -> 2GB swap).
    3. DON'T run browser from the server. For browsing use only client browser
    station (min. PIII 300, 256MB). Java use a lot of resources (proc, ram).

    We are experiencing the same problems.
    A fast client pc with at least 512 Mb memory will speed up some performance.

    Check your resources on the client (CPU,MEM) when working with ciscoworks,
    you will see that java will almost use them all..

    Markus;

    "I feel your pain", and it's enlightening to find that a 2.4Ghz/1GB machine
    is still not enough.

    CiscoWorks was a big disappointment for us. Granted, we tried it on a
    lesser machine than yours, but also on a Sun Sparc ... neither had anything
    close to acceptable performance. Literally took minutes to load a page to
    create/submit a job. We gave up on the product.

    I consider this to be one of the few failures in the otherwise superior
    Cisco product line.
