    InDesign Server CS6 performance

    johnsherlock

      I'm carrying out some basic performance tests on CS6 and find that it is nearly 3x slower to execute a VERY simple jsx script using the SOAP webservice API by comparison to either CS5.5 or CS4. Is it a known issue that CS6 is slower than its predecessors? Is there some tuning that I can perform to improve the speed of CS6?

       

      All three versions are running on my laptop, all executing the same script using the SampleClient (sampleclient-java-soap) which comes with the InDesign SDK. I added some timestamp logging to the SampleClient to highlight the timing issues - typical output below (using the -repeat param to run 10 times) running the HelloWorld.jsx script that ships with InDesign Server.
