Very slow syncing

Post by omk298 » Wed Apr 25, 2007 10:20 pm

Hi

I've installed v 1.5.2.0, along with Thunderbird 2.0, Active Sync 4.5 and WM 5.0. Whenever I try and sync the calendar (with or without other items) it goes very slowly, and stops before completing the sync, for example at 50/56 items. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling active sync and birdiesync, with no change.

Any ideas please?

Hello omk298,

Is it a local calendar or a remote one ?
When it hangs, could you send the logs to support as described in this thread ?
Thanks.

The calendar syncs with Google Calendar via the Provider plugin, so is a local one, sort of. I've emailed the logs to support

Thanks

I think that you should have a look to this thread.
It describes some problems with the Google provider. The slow synchronization is very likely linked to them.

Same problem, local calendar

Post by dogpile » Tue May 08, 2007 7:32 am

Hi

I have the same set-up as omk298 but my calendar is local in TB. Since upgrading TB and BirdieSync, CPU usage during Sync shoots to 100%.

In task manager, it's thunderbird that's using all the respources.

Any ideas on how I can fix this?

thanks

Hello dogpile,

I don't think it is the same problem. omk298 had very likely no CPU problem and the slow sync was caused by the use of the Google provider.

- Was everything OK with Thunderbird 1.5 ?
- If you only synchronize events, do you have the heavy CPU load ?
- Does-it freeze the computers or prevent you from using other programs, or only Thunderbird ?
- Do you use a local calendar (not a remote one) ?
- Are some events synchronized during the synchronization or not at all ?

Thanks.

Hi Birdy

Thanks for the response....answers below

- Was everything OK with Thunderbird 1.5 ?

Yes, worked like a charm.

- If you only synchronize events, do you have the heavy CPU load ?

I sync cards, events and tasks. Only while syncing events does TB jump to use all available resources so I'm 100% maxed out.

- Does-it freeze the computers or prevent you from using other programs, or only Thunderbird ?

CPU use is at 100% during sync with TB using all thats available (usually 70-80%) and so using any other app is virtually impossible. All apps are affected, not just TB.

- Do you use a local calendar (not a remote one) ?

Local

- Are some events synchronized during the synchronization or not at all ?

All cards, tasks and events are synchronized - there's no problem with that side of things ... just the heavy use of CPU every 10 mins or so means that I have to pull the plug in order to work proberly.

cheers

Which version of Lightning are you using ? Is it 0.3.1 ?
Did you define a past synchronization period in BirdieSync options to limit the synchronization of your events ? (2 weeks for instance)

Lightning version 0.3.1

I didn't define a past synchronization period in BirdieSync options - should I try that?

Synchronization with Google calendar is now possible in version 1.5.3.0. But presently the Google calendar provider needs to be patched. Check out this thread.
