Pinned topic SV-1 diagrams - DoDAF 2 encyclopedia - System Architect v11.4.2, very slow!

‏2012-12-10T21:56:13Z |
My group is currently running System Architect v11.4.2 on Windows Server 2008 R2 and we have been noticing that for the SV-1 diagrams, each time we drag a new symbol onto it - for example, a Performer (DM2) or System (DM2) - it takes almost 3 minutes for the symbol to actually appear! We are pretty sure this is due to the "representational consistency" report that is run automatically each time a new symbol is introduced. The problem has gotten progressively worse - when there was only 50 - 80 symbols on our SV-1 it took maybe 20-30 seconds for the symbol to show up, but now we have almost 600 symbols (~200 Performers/Systems and ~400 System Resource Flows) and it's taking approx. 165 seconds each time we drag a symbol on! Unacceptable for the scale of work that we do.

Has anyone else out there experienced this issue, and if so, is there a resolution? It's not a hardware issue - we looked at the performance/resource monitor and nothing was even close to being 'pegged'.

Thanks,

    I should add a couple things:

    1.) This is also happening on our SV-2 and SvcV-1 diagrams... it's just that it's most noticeable on our SV-1s.

    2.) The representational consistency report appears to get automatically run even when we drag something as seemingly benign as a Description box onto the diagram. This is surprising to us, since as far as we know, interfaces cannot even be drawn between Description symbols!

      Just wanted to let everyone know that downloading System Architect 11.4.2.2, as well as the 'hotfix' for APAR PM79218 , fixed the problem satisfactorily... it is now contingent upon the user to initiate a 'Refresh' which then draws the Sys. Resource Flow lines automatically based on which Systems/Performers/etc. have been dragged onto the diagram recently, but it only takes 5-45 seconds per 'Refresh' now as opposed to minutes before (for each new symbol!)
