    PDF Generator ES2 unstable performance issues

    daniel.lamboy

      Hi there,

       

      I have installed an PDF Generator ES2 on a Weblogic Server within a Windows 2008 R2 64Bit Virtual Machine.

      The Machine has a 3Ghz Single Core CPU and 4GB of Ram.

       

      After installing the PDF Generator ES2 I tried to install a Watched Folder Service.

       

      Generally the Watched Folder Service does render the documents as it should, but the generate process seems to be very slow and unstable.

      So I have render times between 16 and 45 seconds on a 2mb sample docx (pictures, tables, etc. inside) document converting to 300dpi standard PDF (PDFA1b 2005 standard).

       

      While rendering the renderer seems to use nearly 100% of the cpu.

       

      Is there any hint where to start analysing and then optimizing such an issue?

          Hi,

           

          We have the same issue with generating PDF files.

          The process is very slow and unstable

          we have also conversion times between 5 and 50 seconds for simple doc files.

          I use the launchpad application or a livecycle process to start the conversion.

           

          The first time we convert a file, it takes for example 25 seconds.

          If we convert the same file directly after the first one, it takes only 12 seconds

           

          If we wait for longer period (1 - 2 minutes) between the two conversions, its again 25 seconds.

           

           

          Server configuration:

           

          Windows Server 2008 R1 SP2 64bit Virtual server

          4 GB RAM

          2 CPU 2,4 GHz

           

           

          Thanks
