Rhino 6 - Slow save to network location

(Jcreecy) #1

I have a large file that I’m working in (257Mb) that takes ~22 minutes to save to a remote network location. To save the file locally takes seconds, and to then drag and drop it into the same network folder takes ~55 seconds. My workstation and the remote storage are all on the same domain, and we have a dedicated VPN tunnel between the local AD Server and the datacenter where the DC and the storage physically resides. Watching the network communications it’s slow steady throughput when saving over the network, I can copy a file to the same place via explorer while saving in Rhino and the throughput spikes until the transfer is complete then goes back to thew slow rate.

No ideas yet. @dalelear is the file I/O guy and is off today.
At least you have a reasonable work-around for the time being.

I wonder of it’s related to some file scanning process that is going on that is bypassed by the Windows File Explorer…
