Slow Adding Product in Admin

Thread began 10/25/2009 10:49 pm by emy302298 | Last modified 10/26/2009 2:54 pm by Jimmy Wu | 1050 views | 1 replies |


Slow Adding Product in Admin

I have over 200 + products on my store at admin

The speed to add a new product has increased from 1 minute with less than 10 products to over 30 minutes with over 200+ products and continues to increase with each additional product.

Each product typically has 4 options per the following:

1. Furnish
2. Install
3. EF&I

1. 1.215
2. 1.250

1. SAN
2. PC


1. Yes
2. No

1. = the default

Can the speed be improved?
If no, any recommendations?

This is caused by having too many product options. In the database, each combination of product options values is stored into the database since each combination is completely customizable, so having so many options for each product will slow down the database access considerably. If you were able to reduce the number of product options and the number of values for each of these options, the number of entries would be greatly reduced and the database would run more quickly again.
