  • Huge Boot Time with Windows 8 and Palo

    Hello Palo Fans,

    Fantastic:
    Windows 8 speeds up boot time down to a few seconds.
    WITHOUT Palo!
    Booting WITH Palo Server, however, needs more then 3 minutes on my PC!
    Reason is loading of all Palo Databases into RAM at any boot.

    My PC:
    ASUS Notebook with Intel Core 7 CPU
    8 GB RAM
    Fast SSD-HardDrive (more than 100 GB free)

    My Palo:
    - Version 3.2 (I checked Palo V5 - without success)
    - Default Ini File (I checked some (all?) parameters in ini file, but without success)
    - Only 1 own (big) Palo database
    - Size of this Datebase-Directory: 500 MB (only the csv-files, no log files)
    - about 200 rules in this database (deleting them has no influence)

    During booting WITH Palo-Server, the PC is blocked while loading Palo Service
    If I start Palo Service manually, I can see the reason:
    RAM increases in 10 MB slices up to 1 GB. This needs about 3 minutes on my PC!


    My questions:
    - is it possible to fasten start time of Palo service by any parameter in Palo.ini or any other Palo parameter file
    - is it possible to fasten start time with any other action (e.g. minimize RAM space of the Palo process
    - may the problem depends on any specifica of my PC?
    - is there any other idea?

  • Hi Bernd,

    1/ do you really need to start your palo server at each boot ?
    2/ do you still have *.archived files in your data directory ?

    I dont think it could come from your pc cause the specs look rather good.

    do you have the opportunity to try to load your db on a linux system (for instance in a virtual machine)

    No, it is not neccessary to start palo at boot. (but it would be more comfortable, of course ;)

    No Archive files. I deleted them all

    Not at this time. I can try do install Linux and Palo on another PC (if necessary)
