Zim

Zim slows to a crawl after 1000 pages

Asked by Tim Reed on 2018-06-13

Zim works great up to about 400 - 500 pages. Really starts to slow down after that. At 1500 pages, wait time to
change from one page to another was from 10 to 15 seconds. No images on any page - only plain text with tags.
Even after indexing, wait was about the same. Wait time for Zotero with exact same data was 2 seconds max.
Zim is a great program but not practical for large amounts of data (1000 -3000 pages).

Here is info regarding my hardware and operating system:

ZIM version: 0.68

Operating system: Linux Mint Cinnamon 18.3 64 bit

hardware:
Processor - AMD A6-5200 APU

hard drive: 1 TB

Ram: 8 gigs

Python version: 3.5.2

Let me know if you need more info.

Thanks for your help.

In general zim is designed to avoid such bottlenecks but apparently in your
case something is malfunctioning.

It helps if you include some information about the version you are using
and other details that might help diagnose the problem.
