    Default Performance v6 vs v5?

    I am curious on zimbra performance for v6 vs v5 on same hardware? Planning an upgrade soon and don't want to be surprised that there is a performance hit. (would actually hope it is faster)
    My environment is (RHEL4 X86_64 Zimbra 5.0.19) 65 users most using the ajax interface, about 5 smart phones, but doing about 3,500 emails/day and some users are complaining at times about a couple of sec wait switching between folders/sending receiving emails, ...
    What experiences have you all had?

    We recently upgraded from ZCS 5.0.20 NE to 6.0.5, under the same OS as you. I don't have our server specs in front of me but if I recall correctly it's a dual-core Xeon running at 1.86 Ghz with 8 Gigs of RAM and 10,000 RPM SAS drives configured as RAID 10. Not sure how our mail volumes compare to yours.

    After the upgrade I haven't had any complaints. The one thing to really watch out for is the change in how zmbackup works--it defaults to zipping the backups which means your full backups are going to be much bigger and take longer than was the default for v5.

    You do need to remember that if using the Ajax ZWC then a lot of the processing is happening on the clients end; lazy loading etc. Thus if they are hammering their own workstations, or the workstation is a low spec, at times they may see little time glitches.
