Memory useage / slow to delete
I am in the process of migrating an organization from Exchange 2003 on SBS2003 to Zimbra 7 NE. (20 users)
Two things are a problem
1) the amount of RAM that zdclient or webUI uses. about 2 x (or more) as compared to MS Outlook 2003: Users have large mailboxes >3Gigs with thousands of emails in their inboxes. Zimbra desktop uses upwards of 170MB of memory. Switching off Zimbra Desktop and using browser interface in IE7/8 or Firefox4 causes the browser memory useage to climb to the same. The desktop machines in use are WinXP sp2 with only 512MB ram.
A) Is this because of the large inboxes?
B) What is normal RAM usage of zdclient apps.
2) as per Any advice on Zimbra client speed increases? - Spiceworks Community, most users are happy with the performance of zimbra, but one user reports:
deleing an email in ZIMBRA takes between 4 and 6 seconds for each email. i delete around 500 emails a day so 500 times 6 seconds = 1 hour each day simply waiting for an email to be deleted...
As things stand ZIMBRA appears to be a ... a lot slower than outlook ever was
This user is using Firefox and/or zimbra desktop client, and has an inbox with 20,000 unread messages. Is there anything that can be done about this perceived performance issue?
