Report Designer terribly slow in Linux [message #366614] Wed, 14 January 2009 17:56 Go to next message

Hi.

BIRT Report Designer (running inside Eclipse) is extremely slow in Linux
(I've tested in Ubuntu 8.04, 8.10 and 7.04). It's one order of magnitude
slower than in Windows (considering the same machine).

Even trivial tasks such as selecting a report element and modifying a
property (in Property Editor) or scrolling the report takes several
seconds.

Eclipse itself runs fine. I've tried in different machines, with and
without Compiz (hardware-based GUI acceleration), varying CPU (Pentium
HT 4.2 GHz, Core 2 Duo 1.83 GHz, with 1.5 - 2 GB RAM), without any
success. It doesn't matter if I use Eclipse 3.2, 3.3, 3.4.0 or 3.4.1
(with BIRT 2.3.1).

Does anybody have the same problem ? Any tips for solving the issue ?
I'm thinking about using a profiler (Yourkit) in order to identify the
bottlenecks, do anybody have suggestions about where I should look first ?

Thanks a lot in advance!

Murilo,

I think there is a bug open for this 241742. You may want to add your
comments to that bug. Also have you tried any of the 2.5 builds?

Same problem using 3.7.2 or 4.2 version.
The problem occurs on complex reports (with grids placed on another grid).
Each time I select an item, Birt seems to reload full report XML. So, it tooks 10 to 20 seconds just to select a report element.
