There are a number of different things you can do to maximise performance. Here are our recommendations:
- Allocate the maximum memory you have in your computer. Go to 'Preferences' > 'System' and type in the total RAM you have in MB. So, if you have 16GB memory, type 16000 and click 'Set'. The software will restart to use the new memory settings. You can see this at the 3:55 mark of the Program Preferences video.
- Upgrade to a newer version of Java. Which version of FlowLogic are you running? If FlowLogic 8.4, then we recommend Java 16 or newer. This will give increased performance over older versions of Java. You can check the version of Java FlowLogic is using by going to 'Help' > 'About'. Our support article, Java - which version should I use?, might be of use.
- Check that your hard drive isn't full. It is good to have at least 20% free disk space. FlowLogic writes information to a temp folder and if the HD is full, the recording of temp data can become very slow.
- Don't analyse files directly from a network drive/folder. Download all files to your local computer, analyse, save and then backup in the network.
- You can turn the 'Undo' feature off ('Preferences' > 'General'). Depending on the FlowLogic version, this may improve your performance.
